Hello,

I am planning to purchase the DIY Skimmer CS1, I believe.

WOuld it be able to fit a bubble blaster 3k?

It should, but the only thing I'm unsure of is how tall the pump is when the output nozzle is pointed up, assuming the volute can be turned. Otherwise, you can just put a 90 on the output, and up and into the base of the CS1. The peglegs on the CS1 give 4.5" underneath the body. You may also want to regulate the air draw with a small valve, as the specs suggest it can draw 1200-1500 lph, while the CS1 is designed around the PSK-1000 which pulls about 1100.

Thanks. I placed the order...hopefully it works. I didn't get an email notification that it was shipped.

I understand that there must be a backlog and just wanted to know the estimate ship date i.e. 2-3 days will ship etc/

I just sent an email about the skimmer. There seems to be issue with the cone and the bottom flange. The cone is smaller than the flange where it leaves a few gaps....hopefully I can get a quick resolution.

Thanks

ya I did. I was suppose to do a review, but haven't gotten a chance.

Heres the cliff notes:

-fun to build
-works very well with the sicce 2500, but need to open the valve all the way since its amuch stronger pump.
