I was looking at getting a self cleaning head for my skimmer, seen one of these last night and was wondering if the are any good. Avast swabbie along with a Davy Jones' Skimmate Locker.

I was thinking on getting both as i have been super busy with work lately and i have not had any time to clean the skimmer and just thought this would be a little easier. Any one using one or hear reviews on them?

I want one of these as well. Not sure we can share shipping though. I don't think we are close enough. Any chance of group order.

LOL, I heard "arrgh matey" as I read the title of this thread :razz:

A neat idea for sure and the carbon lid thingy that reduces the wonderful skimmate aroma. These guys have come out with some pretty innovative ideas. Not that they're the first to come up with it but they've sure made them more easily accessible to those that are DIY challenged :wink:

I have one on my PM bullet 2, works great and I saw improved skimmer performance with the cleaner neck, Avast was great to deal with as well, great customer service.

I have one on a bk mini 160. It will ruin you for keeping up maintenance (cleaning skimmer neck) if you ever run a skimmer without one.

So i would say 100% worth it.

Yeah, I'd be down for that,...

I'd need a 7" (BK M180) Swabbie and a med. DJ locker.
