Barr Aquatic Systems is dedicated to providing quality equipment at a fair price. We use the latest 3D modeling tools to develop our products, backed by hands-on testing on real reef tanks. All of our equipment has been individually tested and approved by reef enthusiasts (and Soapers too!).

BAS was started outside of Spokane, WA. in 2004, when my design for a tall Beckett skimmer took the market by storm. Additional products were added over the years, but I simplified to only 3D printed items in 2018. 

In late 2019, I started adding homemade soap products, and then homemade soaps, forming Secret Mountain Soapery. 

I’m an Electrical Engineer from Gonzaga University, with a passion for designing things that help others. I love teaching kids, and volunteer at three local primary and secondary schools, and two universities (GU and EWU). I’m also a supporter of FIRST robotics, coaching or mentoring FLL, FTC and FRC teams.
