Hello does anyone have any way how to clean at the bottom in the middle below the piece with the holes I tried using different size brush’s thru the holes and thru the bottom but still can’t get that spot clean any ideas would be great. Thanks Ted

I have the Reef Octopus 2000 and I'm fairly certain they have a similar build, the 1000 is just smaller. I honestly don't worry too much about getting below the grate, if it looks really nasty then I'll let it soak in a 10-1 water/vinegar solution agitate it a few times then rinse. I only do this once in a while though cause it makes the skimmer go nuts after putting it back in service.
