The intake bay is a custom designed and constructed skimmer system that blends in with the overall aesthetic of the naturally styled ecosystem pond. The specifications will vary depending on the pump(s) used and estimated debris load. The modular products that make up an intake bay help to provide skimming and pump hosing needs on liner membrane, or earth bottom water features of all sizes. After debris is collected within the intake bay, general maintenance is done by manually removing with a net. Overall, an intake bay will add a custom skimming system on water features where a preformed skimmer cannot be properly implemented.
