Reef Octopus Bubble Blaster protein skimmer pinwheel pump

Our Bubble Blaster skimmer pumps are a true innovation to the aquarium hobby. While most other skimmer pumps on the market are modified water pumps fitted with a modified impeller to draw and chop air.  The Bubble Blaster were the first pumps designed and built to be a skimmer pump for unmatched air shredding performance and efficiency. These pumps feature a digital control circuit board inside that controls directional start-up and RPM speeds. This smart circuit board will shut the pump off if it detects a problem protecting the pump from damage. Another unique feature is the clear volute housing which allows you to see inside the pump without having to take it apart. You can easily see if something is stuck inside. The greatest feature of the Bubble Blaster pumps is the enormous amount of air that they pull in relation to water volume which is the key to aggressive protein skimming. With the performance of these pumps and a 2-year warranty how can you go wrong?
