Our Bubble Blaster skimmer pumps are a true innovation to the aquarium hobby. While most other skimmer pumps on the market are modified water pumps fitted with a modified impeller to draw and chop air. The Bubble Blaster were the first pumps designed and built to be a skimmer pump for unmatched air shredding performance and efficiency. These pumps feature a digital control circuit board inside that controls directional start-up and RPM speeds. This smart circuit board will shut the pump off if it detects a problem protecting the pump from damage. Another unique feature is the clear volute housing which allows you to see inside the pump without having to take it apart. You can easily see if something is stuck inside. The greatest feature of the Bubble Blaster pumps is the enormous amount of air that they pull in relation to water volume which is the key to aggressive protein skimming. With the performance of these pumps and a 3-year warranty how can you go wrong?
LOW HEAT - Bubble Blaster pumps run at a cool temperature to avoid extra heat to the water of your tank, whether working internally or externally.
PIN-WHEEL IMPELLER - Bubble Blasters employ a high cluster pin-wheel impeller which slices through the bubbles and injects them into the water column producing mass amounts of minute microbubbles. This produces a pillow of surface area to extract dissolved organics from the water column. The Slicone Nitride impeller bearing and shafts is made of Silicon Nitride, unlike other ceramics, Silicon Nitride has superior wear-resistance, self-smooth nature and deters calcium build up. Therefore reducing maintenance frequencies and ensure a longer operating life.
SILENT OPERATION - Bubble Blaster Pump is engeneered to run nearly silent
DIGITAL CIRCUIT BOARD - Digital Control Circuit Board controls directional start-up, RPM speeds and a safety auto shut-off function if the Bubble Blaster detects a problem.
