It could be a DAS skimmer. They were Deltec clones.

Deltec for sure, contact them and see if they can help you out with a replacement pump.

How many pumps does it have? More than likely Eheim pumps.

Something like a 1004 or something like that.

I could be wrong but I ran an Ap Deltec years back and although your skimmer resembles it I’m dont think it is a Deltec. With the dimensions you gave you would have numerous holes for numerous pumps that I don’t see. At first I thought it was A Deltec unit but I don’t think it is.

dont think it's a DAS either since the DAS have that pentagonal cup base and lid.

weird one for sure. wondering if that T'd section that resembles an injector could be a feed for ozone or pellet reactor etc.
