Davy Jones' Skimmate Superlocker

$ 149.99
Now that the Swabbie has increased skimmate production while also reducing the frequency of skimmer cleaning, wouldn't it be nice not to have to empty your smelly collection cups as often, or even better, worry about messy skimmate overflows?

We've developed a device that sinks two boats with one cannonball: isolate skimmate while purifying stinky exhaust air, as well as provide a failsafe mechanism to shut off overflowing skimmers.

This is the super-sized version of our popular Davy Jones' Skimmate Locker.  Now you can safely contain just under 5 gallons of terrible smelling reef poo in your fish room or very large tank stand.  We've opted to use a nice two-part bucket lid (click photo for large detail).  The bottom ring snaps securely to your average 5-gallon bucket, with a rubber gasket to help prevent spills when carrying.  Then, the top portion of the lid threads into the ring, also with a rubber gasket, which makes opening quick and easy.  Simply pull the sensor and drain tube fittings and carry to your favorite skimmate dump site.  Note that in order to save on shipping, the 5-gallon bucket itself isn't included.  We figure that anyone with a need for this size locker ought to have at least one bucket lying around.

Digital Out version is now available for aquarium controllers.  Need an email notification when it is time to empty your skimmer?  How about a low level sensor in your sump that is impervious to coralline algae and can send you a text message and turn off your return pump at the same time?  Just want to simply replace the tired magnetic float switches on your shiny new Apex?  Digital is for you.  Connections are 2 wire non-polarized 18 AWG shielded wire, simply plug into your breakout box or use the float switch adapter wire that came with your controller.

Great solution

I'm in the build process of a new tank and the sump area is going to be in a fish closet carved out of the master closet. I was looking for a way to send the skimmate out of the closet to make sure I didn't have any odor problems that would not be a positive experience for my wife. The Superlocker was exactly what I was looking for - it's well built and will allow me to send the waste to the garage making everyone happy. Very pleased to find it and get it.

Davy Jones’ Skimmate Superlocker is awesome!!

I have a 6' tall skimmer that was producing more than the skimmer cup could handle, and the smell would make you gag. Hook up my Davy Jones’ Skimmate Superlocker, the smell is completely gone and I no longer have to worry about messy overflows. If your on the fence about purchasing, buy it, you will not regret it!

Will do the job

I bought the Davy Jones’ Superlocker. I have a fish room, so i am able to use larger products. So far So good. I like the idea of being able to travel a little and not worry. I ordered the product and received it in short order. Installation was simple and straight forward. I would not hesitate to purchase from Avast Marine Works again.

Skimmate Superlocker

Great ! Easy setup although special lid doesn't fit Red Sea Coral Pro salt buckets, but I found one at Ace Hardware that was heavy duty which provided an excellent tight seal. Have peace of mind now.
