I have been looking for a scrubber for awhile now since I don't want to diy one. I just got an email that Icecap came out with a budget friendly scrubber.


There's not much info on them, but has anyone seen them in action? Apparently they were at MACNA. I like my icecap gyre so I figure this could be decent.

I saw it at MACNA and was impressed with what I saw. Let's see if we can get some more input...

You can't with many vendors, but that is one of the things that sets the @CoralVue team apart and they have high quality products, they know their products, and they have an active presence here on R2R!!!

Looking at these myself. Price point is much better than clear water scrubbers, especially when you factor in you don’t need to pay $60 for parts to block the light from shining in your face.

There is a drain and a safety drain. What may look like a third outlet is capped on the side; that piece is where water trickles down on the screen inside the unit.

The units are out there and all are at the same price point. I am a clear water owner and looks like I may very well be making a change. The looks alone have me sold not to mention the drain assemblies, light block out and the ease if access to cleaning.
Easy to build a platform for these folks !! -
Take 4 pieces of eggcrate cut to desired height/width and using nylon tie straps, strap together into a cage and it is now a Platform for your scrubber and matches the Ice Cap housing

Hey @[email protected] is the plumbing standard USA plumbing? All the sizes are in mm. I have 25mm for the main drain the 15mm for the emergency and 16mm for the inlet. What is that in standard plumbing? I don't want to bring this to HD to figure that out
