Reefbuilders – BRIAN BLANK
The Skimz DLC3 and Skimz DLC4 both feature the touches we’ve come to expect with Skimz’s products — a clean look, white accents and some nice handy details that let you know they really thought it out.
The Skimz DLC also has a handle to be able to grab it to pull it out for a good cleaning or maintenance. Each chamber has a color-coded label – Calcium, Magnesium, kH and Salt NaCl-Free – with a corresponding colored silicon tubing to easily identify each dosing component. Skimz also sells tubing in 2m, 4m and 8m packaging.
The tubing slips over a nipple fitting that pulls the mixture up from the bottom of chamber through rigid tubing securely attached to the DLC. In front of each chamber is a tube holder cutout to help keep the tubing in place.
Another nice touch of the Skimz DLC3 and DLC4 is what they dub their “slide and pour” tops. Each chamber top features an oval cutout with one portion open to the container. It is sealed with a shorter oval cutout allowing you to slide it back to access the chamber filling hole and easily slide it back to cover it.
