The Blue Thumb Elite Series External Pond Skimmers are highly durable and favored by contractors for their strength. They come equipped with a Matala mechanical filtration mat and a natural-looking faux lid that blends seamlessly into any landscape.

The octagonal shape, along with the ribs and gussets, provide added strength and eliminate any possibility of distortion. The extended snout design allows for more efficient skimming and easier installation and concealment. Additionally, the buoyant door floats with the water level, ensuring optimal skimming at all times.

The skimmers are equipped with a mesh pre-filter net that removes larger debris like leaves, while the Matala mat removes smaller particles. The marine-grade stainless steel hardware and filter mat support ensure long-lasting durability.

The Blue Thumb Elite Series External Pond Skimmers also include spin-welds for auto-fill and overflow, making maintenance and upkeep a breeze. If you're looking for a reliable, high-performance pond skimmer, the Blue Thumb Elite Series is an excellent choice.
