Reef Octopus Bubble Blaster HY-5000s Protein Skimmer Pump
The Reef Octopus Bubble Blaster skimmer pumps are the very essence of true innovation in the marine aquarium hobby. Popularly found on the Super Reef Octopus skimmer (aka SRO). Until recently 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 specifically engineered to be a skimmer pump for unmatched air shredding performance and efficiency. The pump is enhanced with a digital control circuit board inside that controls directional start-up direction and RPM speeds. This smart circuit board provides the reliability and high performance the Bubble Blaster skimmer pumps are known for.
A unique feature of the Bubble Blaster is its 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?
