StinkSink Compatibility

Initially the StinkSink is made to work with the most common skimmers, those with a flat lid and symmetrical hole pattern - simply sitting on top of the skimmer lid. We have just completed our design to accommodate lid mounted float valves, and are currently accepting new model requests for skimmers like the Maxspect Jump, and new Reef Octopus Regal and Elite skimmers which come with a lid mounted float valve. The StinkSink is not compatible with Automatic Neck Cleaners yet (read why ANC's create the same problem they are trying to solve), or skimmers that have non-flat lids, such as the thumbscrews on Bashsea skimmers, or the domed protrusions on some AquaMaxx skimmers. We just completed testing on the design for the Red Sea RSK skimmers. 

The StinkSink requires approximately 3.25" of clearance on top of your skimmer. 

Using the StinkSink with Ozone
Using carbon to filter out ozone is a well-known methodology. While the StinkSink can be employed on skimmers using ozone, we have not tested its efficacy due to the complexities of what testing ozone removal would entail. The StinkSink's main components will resist ozone exposure well - including the main vessel's cast acrylic and polycarbonate, and the EPDM o-ring. However, the standard nylon hardware is less resistant to ozone than other components. If you are using ozone injected into your skimmer, or your sole purpose for using the StinkSink is in fact ozone removal, please add our special polycarbonate hardware to your order.
