This Swabbie option is for existing lid retrofit.  Just send us your skimmer lid and we will install the motor housing for you.  Turn around is usually about a week from when we receive the lid.  When ordering, please add a comment in the box at checkout to alert us that you are sending your lid and when we should expect it.  Another option is to request a new lid from your skimmer manufacturer be sent to us, that way you don't have to use a dinner plate on your skimmer until the Swabbies lid returns to you.

Joey from The Coral Reef Talk made a really great video overview of the process:

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the retrofit process.  You may send your lid to us at:
