      Question Skimmer Cap Question?

      Why aren't skimmer caps concave to direct the flow into the collection cup more efficiently than the flat surface?

      There are a few high end skimmers with a silicone pyramid affixed on a flat lid but it doesn't seem significant. Perhaps a combination of both ideas will make new skimmers more efficient nutrient exporters.

      Some have this feature. E.g. Aquamaxx skimmers.

      Yeah, my aquamax fc-80 has a concave collection cup lid. It's a cool feature but a pain to get all the water out of the top after washing. Not really a biggie but I have ocd and like to dry all tap water off equipment after cleaning before placing back into service, if I let air dry, I get water spots
