Default Coralife Super Skimmers - Caveat emptor

Coralife lists its headquarters in Franklin, Wisconsin. It wan't until a few days a purchase of one of their new Super Skimmers that I noticed in very small letters on the bottom of the box that they are made in China. Now I know why I couldn't quite understand the instruction manual. If we are importing their protein skimmers, why not import their cars as well? The Super Skimmer is rated 4 or 5 stars by dealers, but members of our board have reservations, at least about the previous models. So far mine in working (warming up for 3 days) in a large bucket, but I have reservations about hanging anything that's two major components are held together by a plastic tube, albeit a thick piece. Also, the seal between the collection cup and the body must be tightened very hard, or the O-ring allows drips.
It will probably wind up in a sump, which I was trying to avoid.
