cpr backpac skimmer.. recir?


New member
ive been looking over the many plans for DIY skimmers here and i was looking at the back of my CPR and wondering.. why couldnt i make it a recir by adding say a mj900 id do this by drilling/tapping the holes and using bulkheads etc to attach it.

CPR may sell the square collection cups that come on many of their items. then you would just need to glue in a piece of acrylic. Add a Maxjet and some tubing...

I have one too and wonder if you might be on to something for smaller tanks. You could feed it with a MJ 400 and recirc the 1200 using a couple uniseals and some scrap PVC...
Not sure it's worth the effort but it could be done for <$10 though if you have an extra MJ laying around. Might be a snowy day project. It definately wouldn't hurt anything even if it didn't work out for me.
