Anyone have an idea what the value of these are? I have a complete spare with plumbing and impeller fits 702/902/1003/1004 and maybe others. I heard you can't buy them new anymore.

So you have the pump and impeller and the plumbing I would say start at 500 buck and see what you get, I believe that you can still get them but not easy.

Are you talking about a skimmer here or just the 1260 Eheim pump?

Just the 1260 with the Deltec plumbing and the Deltec impeller, complete and tested. Former? Deltec dealer told me pumps for this series skimmers were no longer available.

I also have a 702 skimmer, but no one seems interested in those anymore...I have a buddy with a 1003 and a 1004 that he can't sell.

The Eheim 1260 pumps are still available. The plumping parts to make them specific for the Skimmer mat not be readily available. The dealer may have been referring to the skimmer. The newer Deltec's are much smaller and work quite well from what I hear.

You have never run or cleaned a Deltec have you? Please don't post here as if I don't know what I am talking about, everyone can purchase a 1260!
