I'm using one, but only for lack of a better alternative.  It is noisy at 
times (a clanking sound) when the water level is not just right, or there 
is obstruction to the flow.  It skims the whole surface, but only for a day 
or so, then leaves and other floating bits of plants would plug it up. I 
have to clean out the intake tubes every couple of days.

Ivo was working on an alternative a while ago.  How is it going Ivo?
