    Reef Octopus (Honya) is another manufacturer that will soon be selling an automated skimmer cleaner a la the original Aqua Driver SkimClean. Besides the estimated price tag, this economy model is different in that it does not appear to have the built in spray down that the AquaDriver has. We’re also unsure how easy it would be to use the Octopus skimmer cleaner out of the box on a non-Reef Octopus skimmer.

    We’ve confirmed these are in fact coming to the states, now the real question lingering will be final price. It will have to be competitive givenĀ Avast Marine’s similar, and already on the market, made in the U.S.A Swabbie.

      Does anyone here have one? Not this one in particular, but an autmated skimmer cleaner…if so, do you feel its value was worth what you paid? Just curious as I’ve not heard much feedback about these gadgets. Thanks!

      @Nick they can be quite valuable if you are on the road often and unable to (or are too lazy to) clean your collection cup often. I still believe cleaning the cup every 3-4 days is just as effective.
