    Easy Decision

    "What a wonderful product to have purchased! Truly amazing, the crisp white color is the perfect determining beacon between new and ready to remove. I also appreciate each order to consist of 10 Skimmers! It helps the black and white decision for a customer as to when the tank is full and ready for service or not. Thank you for such a wonderful product!"
