The regulation of the internal water level in the skimmer takes place through an innovative rotational chamber: the entire skimmer rotates on its base to open and close the adjustment valve. The DC pumps includes an easy-to-use controller, which regulates the pump speed for additional tuning capabilities of the skimmer.
The controller includes a pause button that can be useful when cleaning the skimmer or feeding the aquarium.

How it works: The Ultra Reef BOREI UKB range of protein skimmers is a method of filtration that allows the removal of the surfactants from seawater. It pumps a mixture of aquarium water and air bubbles into a mixing chamber. By exploiting the properties of the film surface tension between air and water, it generates a foam overflowing from the main chamber, and then into a collection cup which allows for easy removal. Quality craftsmanship down to the screws. The Ultra Reef products are based on Italian design and production. Paired with high-quality materials this makes any Ultra Reef device a premium piece of equipment for any aquarium. The parts are made via CNC machining from full blocks of durable PVC, while the assembly is made with anti-corrosive titanium screws for an extremely long service life. For further proof of its quality, look no further than Ultra Reef’s ISO 9001 quality certification.
The entire skimmer rotate on its base do open and close the regulation valve. The DC pumps includes an easy-to-use controller, which integrate a speed regulation system, a 60 second “delayed start” (after blackout) and a 5 minutes “pause” button.
Modular mounting system: The skimmer can be easily disassembled by removing a single screw. All the acrylic parts and the mechanisms are assembled by means of coupling systems and Easy Flip gaskets, which allow you to remove all the components during the cleaning of the unit.
Ultra Reef skimmers have an integrated silencer that minimizes the skimmer noise making it virtually silent. The exhaust system is submerged in the base of the skimmer for silent operation as the clean water is discharged back into the tank. Rubber feet are installed under the base to absorb all vibrations and avoid annoying resonances.
