    Looking to replace my sump with the Eshopps adv-100. Is anyone familiar with this model? Is there a way to control the depth in the skimmer section? I emailed their customer service a week ago and still no response. I guess they are still trying to figure it out themselves. But really does anyone know? Thanks in advance.

    I have this sump. The skimmer section (large one taking up an entire side) has an adjustable level but it fluctuates with evaporation which is the only thing I dislike about the sump design. I put my refugium in that section and put my skimmer into the fuge area and built a PVC platform to get to a good working depth.

    Are you using the built in ATO, would that help or Do you think if I put a different ATO in the skimmer section it will help?

    The ATO could go in the skimmer or return section as both will fluctuate with evaporation since they’re all connected. I don’t own an ATO though so a manual top off once a day or every 2 days doesn’t keep a skimmer functioning well so it’s in the center.
