The swabbie is a solid piece of equipment a must have for all skimmers I was a little concerned it would affect the foam and skimmate production in the neck but had no effect at all that I could tell. I installed this on my ATB 1050 a skimmer and drilled and threaded my skimmer lid myself very easy to do. I will be purchasing another one in the next couple of weeks for my reef octopus 220 elite internal. Thanks Avast for the solid in reliable products you make I would definitely recommend for anybody due to solid build quality and reliability
this thing is bada**
just look at the title it says it all. quite, well built, and cheaper than the competition. i give it a 11/10
Great product- does exactly what it is supposed to do
Well built, fits my skimmer well, and does a great job keeping my skimmer neck clean. Very happy
Simple to setup & program
What I enjoyed the most about my new Swabbie was the ease of set up onto my Essence130. Only took a couple of minutes to get it unboxed and centered in the cup. I had ordered the wrong size wiper, but Avast quickly identified and shipped out the correct size for the neck of my skimmer. Also, setting up and programming the unit to run on my Apex was simple as well, and I have my Swabbie running for 4 minutes, every 4 hours. If that’s too much/too little, it’s simple enough to adjust the timing. Great quality item, well manufactured, and performs such a necessary function. I will continue to do business with Avast for any of my future tank needs, as I have purchased several other items for calcium/media reactors. - Derek M.
Works great and easy to use with apex
Works as it should and I've cleaned my skimmer once since setting it up vs every 2 days, and I only cleaned it because I was going out of town. I will be putting one on every skimmer I own from here on out.
