New Downdraft II Technology
Designed with a very small footprint of only 6.5 x 9.5" and no valve or stand pipe needed.
It has a base box height of 12" and will work submerged in up to 8" of water.
The Downdraft II tower design has been extensively modified to create the ultimate foaming action in the smallest possible space. No longer is it necessary to buy a 3-4 ft tall skimmer to get this kind of water cleaning action.
We adjusted the downdraft tower design to allow full skimming tower action all the way to its base. The bio-ball action has been changed in the tower and this design only uses three to six bio-balls to produce intensive foaming action. These changes to the downdraft action are known as Downdraft II design.
One of the biggest space robbers for in sump skimmer's is the water outlet control. Currently Skimmers use either a gate valves or stand pipes to adjust the internal water level in the skimmer. They can almost double the footprint of the unit in your sump, taking up valuable space or worse, not even fitting in.
Our answer was to create a new way of being able to adjust your skimmer. This is done with our exclusive Pat. Pending sliding gate for the outlet. Adding only 3/8" in width to the skimmer.
Adjustment is simple and precise, by loosening the friction screw and moving the sliding gate either up or down to adjust your foaming action and then tightening the set screw.
Do to its exceptional waste collecting ability we have included our all acrylic drainable cup that can drain into a remote container and is compatible with our Compact Auto Waste Container.
All Sump Buddy skimmers now come with a clear back panel & Skimming Tower for easy and visible tuning of the skimmer action for maximum performance. Slip on cup for extra fast cleanings. Can be used with our Auto shut-off Waste Container
