OK, one more thing. This baby does the trick very fast. And I could possibly retire it and save it for the next time. I might do that, but for now I just dial the setting so all the water is coming in from the bottom of it, like a traditional inlet. The top part is so high that no surface water enters at all. That keeps any hassle with feeding flakes or floating bits of Riccia etc. from being sucked in.
Then the next time I see any scum, I'll lower it for a few minutes, remove the surface scum, and raise it back up. Easier this way. These things are great!
