What is a Skimmer?

There are two types of filters needed to properly maintain a water garden: the first is a mechanical skimmer and the second is biological filter. Skimmers are designed to eliminate water quality problems and reduce maintenance by removing debris before it sinks to the bottom of the pond, allowing a pond to be installed anywhere, even beneath trees.  The ability of the Aquascape skimmer to remove so much debris from the water is also what makes it an excellent pre-filter for your pump.  The pump is located in the bottom of the skimmer where it receives clean water, not in the bottom of the pond where it can easily become clogged with debris.  Housing the pump in a skimmer maintains the natural beauty of the pond by keeping the pump hidden out of sight.  The skimmer also provides easy access to the pump, as you don’t have to wade into the pond to remove it.  Aquascape offers several different sizes of skimmers based on the design and size of the pond.
