Swabbie in Action – Avast MarinePosted on Monday, April 25th, 2011 at 12:32 pm by ReefTools
Last year, we wrote about a cool motorized protein skimmer neck cleaner called the Swabbie. This cool little reef gizmo, helps keep your skimmer neck clean from build-up. A clean skimmer neck means that nothing is there to impede foam from rising into the cup.
Basically, all you need to do, is plug the Swabbie into a timer, and have it turn on 4-6 times a day, that’s it. Basically, set it and forget it. Avast will even retrofit a swabbie unto your existing skimmer lid.
Here is a video showing the Swabbie in action:
