Wide Mouth Black surface skimmer
Wide mouth Black skimmer Front grid
Wide Mouth Black  skimmer Front Grid (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 Wide Mouth Black 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 Wide Mouth Black 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. Have you ever had your favourite Koi badly damaged or even die as a result from its injuries due to it getting stuck in your skimmer, and then having to place a bit of mesh or similar in front only to find the skimmer is not as efficient. Well we have, which has led to us to embark on designing and manufacturing something to cure the problem, and here it is the one that really works. This virtually eliminates water tension on any bar on or near the water level allowing free passage of all surface debris. Anything vertical or horizontal will always prevent total skimming. The guard itself is manufactured from plastic and completely at home in both fresh and salt water and will safeguard your fish for many years to come. All the edges of the guard are polished and honed to an ultra smooth finish It is so simple to fit and takes just a couple of minutes. All You need to do is remove two of the existing stainless steel screws, offer the guard to the opening and replace the two screws. Its that easy!

As mentioned above the purpose of the Surface Skimmer is to skim, or pull off, floating debris and even dust from the surface of your pond. The pond skimmer works best when gravity falling into a sieve unit, such as the Ultrasieve III, where the leaves and debris can be removed very easy. After the sieve we recommend that the system uses it's own separate pump and pumps into it's own filtration system, such as an Econobead or Elecro Powerbead, you could even pump to a Bakki Shower if you wanted. Alternatively you could replace the Ultrasieve with an Eazy Pod. In simple terms, when the surface skimmer is built into the wall the pipe carrying the waste and of course the surface water, is drawn through the filtration system using a suitably sized pump, the size of this pump will depend on what type of filter and the size of pond you have. The water can then be returned direct to the pond, waterfall, or indeed any other pond feature. But a more preferred option is to return the water through some form of filtration system, there would be very little point in using a skimmer to skim off the floating debris, finer particles and dust to simply pump it back into the pond.
