Pond Skimmers

Pond Skimmers

A very important piece of equipment for any pond is the surface pond skimmer. These pond surface skimmers normally get overlooked at the time of construction. As a result the koi keeper normally wishes they had not forgotten

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, the 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 its recommend that the system uses its own separate pump and pumps in to its own filtration system, such as an Eazy Pod, Elecro Bead Filter or another type of filter.

To explain that a little more when the surface skimmer is built into the wall the pipe carrying the waste and of course the surface water, is pulled using a suitable pump, the size of pump will depend on what type of filter and size pond you have.

Its always better to return the water via a filter then onto a waterfall from the skimmer than direct from pump back into pond as theres not much point in skimming the dust and debri from the ponds surface only to return again.

Koi Zone have many different types of skimmers here on our website on offer.,

We have the Standard skimmers which have a 1.5 inch outlet, these can be used to just skim the water and return directly back to the pond. For those koi keepers who overlooked adding these in wall type skimmers then we have a selection of in Floating pond skimmers such as the Velda skimmer or the Oase swimskim units.
