The SRO XP8000 Recirculating External has a full conical body for enhanced foam production* and performance provided by the Bubble Blaster 10000s pinwheel pump.

*The XP full cone body puts less back pressure on the pump gaining performance enhancements (air/water draw) and the volcano shape offers natural transition of organics up and out of the water column. 

All the latest skimmer design innovations can be found on this SRO XP8000 External model including:

- Bubble Diffusing Chamber and Full Cone Body
 that naturally reduces and stabilizes the foam production; This means less turbulence in the neck area and more contact time for organics to rise and collect

- Oversized Air Silencer for quiet operation and airline mount

- Large Collection Cup with flow directional guide, drain and unit venting

- Precision Control with the easy to turn output flow valve

- Solid Construction Made Tough

- Power The Bubble Blaster HY-10000 pinwheel pump offers super efficiency and the very best in performance. The Bubble Blaster is designed to enhance filtration by employing the innovative pinwheel impeller which delivers more bubbles in greater volume with low energy consumption and heat emission.
