Barr Aquatic Systems

Waste Collectors:

Waste Collector, carbon air filter

The waste collectors have a twist-lock flange, which makes it easier to clean. They also feature the highest quality John Guest hose barb input, and a new integral float chamber. These waste collectors are custom designed for a small foot-print, but a large volume. They feature O-Ring seals and a new area for placing a bag of carbon for air filtering.

The units have a float in them that closes off the air outlet when the fluid level rises to near the top. This puts a slight back pressure on the skimmer, which shuts down the foam production and prevents the waste collector from overflowing. The float auto-resets when the container is emptied.

The Waste collectors can be used with any Barr skimmer or any other skimmer that has an air-tight lid on the collection cup.

The Carbon air filter removes most all of the odor that can be emitted from a skimmer's gunk. It is a MUST HAVE for any skimmer in a living area!
