I only used it for little over a month. Work great with zero issues. Before someone asks, I sadly have to part ways with it because of my sump / stand situation. My sump does not have an adjustable skimmer compartment water level and its high.Unfortunately I can't use a skimmer stand because my stand is not very tall and the skimmer would bump into a support beam. I did use the skimmer on its lowest setting the last month and even it still pulled out some nice thick skim mate. Elite 150INT Super Cone Protein Skimmer.

The Reef Octopus ELITE 150-INT is constructed of high-quality cast acrylic and PVC that disassembles completely for cleaning. Its unique wine glass body naturally stabilizes and concentrates the organic rich foam as it rises. The Elite 150int is equipped with a variable speed Reef Octopus VarioS-2S pinwheel pump with integrated memory controller.This skimmer features a unique "twist and lift" collection cup to make removal and cleaning a simple task, an easy to use vented wedge valve provides precise control, and an underwater outflow for quiet operation. In addition to allowing the pump to run at 5 different speeds, the new VarioS Controller takes the pump to a new level featuring. A float switch connection, which allows you to connect a float switch (included in the box) to the controller. This is an added security feature that allows you to shut off the skimmer pump when your waste collector is full or shut off your water pump when your sump water has reached a high or low level. In all, you don't need another module or controller to add a float switch to your system. These come handy when you are feeding the tank or conducting regular maintenance such as a water change. And the best feature of the VarioS controller is. A 0-10v input which will allow a 3rd party controller such as Neptune System's APEX or Reef Angel to take over the pump and tell it what to do. In this mode, the new VarioS controller becomes an interface between the system controller and the pump allowing you to create intricate programs using your system controller native language. This is unprecedented controllability on a skimmer or water pump. In essence, you can use your system controller as your DC pump controller! The VarioS pump features a true slow startup where the pump slowly ramps up from zero RPM to the full preset speed over a period of approximately 10 seconds. The pump and controller are connected via a waterproof 3-conductor union. The detachable controller will allow for a simple waterproof union. The volute can rotate to change the pump's output orientation in 90 degree intervals, meaning users can output water vertically (up or down) as well as horizontally.
