Bulkhead Fitting

Do you have a large patio garden with water? If this is the case, I will have to walk to the center of the pond every time you want to adjust your pump or cleaning the mechanical filter. That's why skimmers pond is recommended for larger water gardens (over 1,000 liters in volume).

The purpose of a pond skimmer is to remove leaves, twigs and other debris that normally accumulate on the surface of the pond, or inside your mechanical filter in the middle of the lagoon. A pond skimmer not only provides a filter basket and a secondary mechnical filtration equipment, pond skimmers but also provide housing for your pump. From a pool hall is conveniently next to your pond, you never have to get into the middle of your pool pump to adjust or clean the filter.

An example of a pond skimmer is unity 5000 Algreen gallon. Unlike other pond skimmers, pond skimmer Algreen is quite large and measures 22 "x 22" x 16 ". Also included both a basket traps, fish-silicone network and mounting bolts, and a manufacturer's warranty for life on campus.

Pond Skimmer Installation can be very simple. As an example, the instruction sheet for Algreen Pond Skimmer shown below.
