    I bought this from BRS. The bulkhead where the water output on the body is, the output pipe is loose and there's a bunch of salt creep around it. Obviously leaking. I think the joint where the output tube is connected to the hole in the skimmer body the seal is broken. I will disconnect the plumbing to the reactor, drain the water out, and take a good look at it later tonight. I hear BRS carries a full line of Skimz product parts.

    ^Photo in link above shows output pipe completely broke off joint with reactor body. BRS handles Skimz's warranty service.

    Yikes, I wish there was a simple fix I could tell you. I love the idea of the in sump reactor. I'm running an avast marine external reactor.

    This reactor runs external or internal. I'm running it external off my return pump. I was advised to take the stones out and put them in the sump so I can use them again so I put them in a media bag and placed in the skimmer chamber.
