The front of the skimmer is small to keep from detracting from the natural look of your pond. The pond skimmer's depth is only 6-1/4" which allows you to easily hide with rock or other natural elements.

Why would I need a fixed pond skimmer over a door pond skimmer?

Because with a Hybri-Pond Kit you will be building a number of waterfall drops and a stream. When the waterfall pump is shut off this water needs a place to go so with Hybri-Pond Systems containment is built into the tank setup. Because of this the water level in the pond must be fixed to ensure that too much water is not let into the tank until the stream is shut off. A door pond skimmer on the other hand allows the water level to fluxuate and any excess water simply extis out of the overflow port on the back of the filter tank. For this reason Fixed Skimmers come packaged with Hybri-Pond Kits and Door Skimmers with Traditional or Oasis series pond kits.

A Solid and Easily Disguisable Waterfall Wier

Our waterfall weirs help you create a ultra-natural looking start to a waterfall or stream. No bulkey plastic looking waterfall weirs to junk up your landscape! With our weir your stream can begin from beneath a log, underneath a rock or can bubble up from a small rock bed. Creativity is in your hands.

Waterfall Weir
Waterfall Weirs

Our waterfall weir's innovative design allows only the natural elements and flowing water to be seen and can be inverted for a pooling start to the waterfall or stream.

Pond Waterfall Wier
The versatile rock-bearing design supports large or small rock and can start the water course with a tall or zero water drop.

Waterfall Weirs for Waterfalls
The small profile Waterfall Starer allows a wide or narrow start to the waterfall.

 

Remote Pump Chamber Patented Technology

With our pond kits you have the freedom to place the pump chamber away from your pond. The Filter Tank can be positioned as needed to avoid an obstacle, to keep it out of the lawn, or be best aligned with additional water storage tanks.
The intake route is that of the pipe between the skimmer and the Filter Tank. With Filtrific you can place the Filter Tank away from the water feature enabling you to customize your intake route to best fit your landscape.

Common Intake Positioning:
Intake routes for 4" IPS pipe (up to 80 GPM) and 6" IPS pipe (up to 200 GPM) can have the intake pipe run straight and level up to 50 feet (10ft less per bend). Check the skimmer being used for maximum GPM flow.
