ProLine Skimmers have been designed to promote healthy pond life by capturing floating organic debris such as leaves, plants, flowers, grass and twigs into the skimmer basket before they can settle to the pond bottom, which will eventually create a layer of sludge. If left unattended, this will begin decaying and start to produce ammonia. Ammonia buildup can become highly toxic to delicate fish and aquatic life.
ProLine Skimmers are constructed of Heavy-Duty High-Density Polyethylene and can be fitted with a variety of pump sizes to return water to the pond via a waterfall, fountain or return jet. An optional Debris Pad is available for removing fine particulates such as floating dust & pollen. Fittings, hardware and silicone sealant are included to connect your Skimmer to 1 1/2” flexible or 2” rigid plumbing as well as seal the Skimmer intake opening to the pond liner.
