The EV-180 is our flagship skimmer, and one of the best-selling sump skimmers in the world today. Its roots go back to the original EV we released in 1999, and since then we have modified the design to increase its performance and ease of use. Today, the EV-180 represents the core principles of our entire product line: performance, quality, and value.
