Heavy Duty Contruction 1/2" thick flat stock and 1/4" wall acrylic tube. That's double what most competitors use. They're heavy, and built for serious use - nothing light or flimsy here...
UniSeal fittings on the pump, inlet and outlet. We chose UniSeals because they're durable - they flex instead of breaking, and provide a stronger interface than acrylic bonded to PVC. They're watertight, and user-replaceable (Want to modify or reconfigure your NXS1? Go for it!). UniSeals also help isolate vibration and noise from pumps.
Sicce PSK Recirculation Pumps. Sicce pumps are quiet, reliable, and low in power consumption. NXS1 skimmers are built around factory-tuned Sicce PSK pumps and NextReef's custom venturi.
Twist-off Cup Assembly. Machined from solid acrylic, all NXS1 skimmers feature an easy to use twist-lock neck. Collection cup maintenece is as easy as a quarter turn.
Machined Trasition. Most skimmers use a thermoformed "transition" - the section where the body reduces down to the size of the neck. Because thermoformed transitions are the weakest point on a skimmer, the NextReef NXS1 series features transitions machined from 1" of solid cast acrylic. They look flat from the outside, but inside the transition is milled in a smooth, compound curve to efficiently concentrate the bubbles and waste into the neck.
Integrated Silencer. Maximum air with minimum noise. They're built heavy, too, and they're easy to remove for cleaning.
