is basically like a filter. It’s an additional way to help keep
leaves and other debris off of the surface of your pond. In fact, you
can call a pond skimmer a “prefilter:” it filters the leaves
and debris off the surface of the pond before they have a chance to
sink to the bottom and clog the second filter.
A pond skimmer sits underwater. A good skimmer is generally easy to
install and should have a screen to protect your fish from getting sucked
into the skimmer. Look for one with “dry hands” servicing
– such a pond skimmer does not require you to even get your hands
wet when cleaning out the filter.
Natural looking rock covers for your pond skimmer help camouflage the
equipment and can be purchased at some stores or online.
