RECOMMEND LOCATION

To maximize circulation, we recommend placing the skimmer filter directly across from a waterfall. If you do not have a waterfall, use your area's prevailing winds to determine where you should place your skimmer along the longest axis. Use the wind to help push the debris toward the skimmer box.

RECOMMENDED INSTALLATION TOOLS

  • Wheelbarrow
  • Brightly Colored Spray Paint
  • Screwdrivers
  • Soil Tamper
  • Shovels
  • Carpenters Level
  • Channel Locks
  • Scissors
  • Utility Knife

GENERAL MAINTENANCE

The skimmer is designed to sweep the surface of the water, so this is free from debris. The debris net or basket inside the skimmer is the first filter stage of the skimmer. The net or basket will collect leaves, twigs, seeds, and other pond debris. It takes approximately two to three minutes every other week to empty the net or basket. More frequent changes will be required during the fall and spring because of the number of leaves falling off the surrounding trees.

It is a good habit during your first season with the pond to periodically lift the skimmer lid and check the quantity of debris in the net or basket. This is especially true in the fall. Keep a mental note as to how often your net must be emptied. It is important that the debris net or basket is not allowed to become too full. Too much debris can reduce the water flow to the pump.
