Little Giant - SK 2.5 Skimmer
The pond skimmer is an important element of your water garden pond. It establishes the water level, houses the pump and plumbing, and removes floating debris (and submerged debris when using the optional bottom drain). It serves as a small biological filter, and circulates oxygenated water to additional filters and back to the pond. It is also a pump pre-filter to prevent the pump from clogging. These durable skimmers improve surface cleaning with an easy flow-through design that both simplifies installation and minimize maintenance.
