Wanted to check to make sure these are the correct items before I order them.

I have a RD3 80w return, a Double Cone 200/RD3 skimmer.

This is the correct part for the skimmer?

And this is for the return?

My sump has 3/4" bulkheads so I'm going to have to find a way to adapt the outpur from the silicon hose from 1.25" (32mm) to 3/4".

Thanks
Vincent

The first two are the correct slot pipes but the silicone hose would be for the output on the RD3 80 and not the input. That said, since the pump has 1" fitting on it for US pumps, you can just use a 1" bushing to 3/4" threaded fitting and then get a 3/4" barbed fitting and some 3/4" vinyl tubing. You will be restricting your flow a bit by reducing it but if that's all you have and you can't drill your sump, then you are stuck.

I wish we had these slot pipes in US stock but unfortunately we don't at the moment. Until we get some, they have to be ordered from Germany.

The silicon hose was meant for the output.

I'll see if I can find some 1" or 3/4" silicon hose in the US.

I bought 1" silicone hose from BRS and 3/4" PVC pipe slides into it, ordered some titanium hose clamps from a boating supply place.

Was all set when I saw that shipping is gonna cost me over $50 for 2 slot pipes. And this is just regular shipping not express. Does it really cost that much to ship 2 slot pipes over to the US?

Yea, UPS is really expensive as is DHL who piggy backs on the USPS and takes 30-45 days. In fact, $50 isn't bad at all if that's all it is. They are prepping a few pallets right now to be shipped to our FT. Myers facility that is scheduled to be leaving the factory in a week to 10 days. It won't arrive for 3-4 weeks but it's possible we can get those included in that shipment and have them shipped from our Ft. Myers office when they arrive. If you want, we can inquire with Germany. send me an email and include the two part numbers you are looking for and the links to them on the site. I will send an email to Germany with you cc'd on it to see if they can be put in with our shipment. Then you would just pay the shipping cost from Ft. Myers which will save you a bunch on shipping. You just might have to wait longer to get them because of the pallet shipment lead time. The good thing is that the pallet is coming by air and not boat but it has to get scheduled for a flight, then make it through customs before a freight company can pick it up and deliver it.

Be sure to include your full name. If we can pull it off, Germany may just send you a paypal invoice instead of ordering online.
