If you are going to build a new Koi pond then please don’t forget to fit one of these surface skimmers, on larger ponds two or more may be needed and these are built into the walls of the pond at the time of construction.The purpose of the Surface Skimmer is to skim, or pull off, floating debris and even dust from the surface of your pond.

Oase Floating Lake Skimmer
Oase Floating Lake Skimmer
  • Oase Floating Lake SkimmerThe Oase Floating Lake Skimmer 250 LM is a high-performance floating skimmer that keeps up to 250 m² of surface water clean. The floating skimmer is particularly well suited for bodies of water with significant water level fluctuation, and it can be flexibly implemented where pollutants accumulate.The system takes up pollutants via a skimmer flap that is 52 cm in width. Pollutants are gathered into an easy-to-remove collection basket for convenient disposal. The integrated, energy-efficient circulation pump ensures powerful skimming and generates ideal water flow thanks to focused water return.Leaves, pollen, and particles deposited on the water surface by wind are a risk to the biological equilibrium in a body of water. OASE skimmers powerfully and effectively pull these pollutant particles off of the surface and into the collection basket. Thus pollutants can be removed from the eco system of the body of water before they harm the eco system.

    Oase Skimmer 250 LM features at a glance:

    • Ideal water level adjustment through float design
    • 52 cm wide skimmer flap for optimum skimmer performance
    • Integrated pump
    • Focused water return flow for efficient water circulation
    • Extremely long service life due to canned motor technology without seals that are subject to wear.

Standard Black surface skimmer (In-Wall concrete or liner)

Pond Skimmers are a very important and fundamental part of any pond construction, yet are so often overlooked by some pond builders or designers.

Pond Skimmers are designed to remove floating debris, foam bubbles and dust from your pond’s water surface by suction, giving the water a polished look. These easy to install and relatively economical devices can save hours in cleaning and maintenance and really can improve the overall water quality of your pond.

A Standard Black Surface Skimmer can make all the difference between enjoying a pond and beginning to resent it. A properly functioning skimmer will collect leaves and anything else that lands on the surface of your pond and collect it into a basket, where it can be easily disposed of. Without a pond skimmer you are sentenced to a life of continually having to clean and remove debris from the pond’s surface. In addition, pond skimmers will remove all this debris before it has a chance to sink and degrade, help to improve the general water quality and aid in the prevention of extra strain being placed on our filtration systems.

Even if you were considering building a pond indoors you should still install a skimmer because in addition to leaves, they skim off the “Dissolved Organic Compounds” (DOC). Dissolved Organic Compounds will form in any pond, and if not removed will cause an unsightly film and bubbles on the water’s surface. Considering the little amount they cost, the benefits are tremendous.

The Standard Black Surface Skimmer is an important piece of equipment for any pond, but more essentially for the Koi Pond and it is more often forgotten about at the time of constructing the pond: most koi keepers wish they had put one in at the time of construction.

If you are going to build a new Koi pond then please don’t forget to fit one of these surface skimmers, on larger ponds two or more may be needed and these are built into the walls of the pond at the time of construction.
