The Helix Skimmer uses the same technology as a pool skimmer, but yet in a pond. The skimmer can be used with a submersible or external pump. Fish can swim in and out of skimmer without being trapped. It is constructed of a heavy duty HDPE mold plastic. It comes with stainless steel screws to attach the liner to the outside rim of the 12" faceplate. A 2" bulkhead is included to be put in the bottom flat back of the skimmer.

There is a pre-drilled hole in the back for an external or submersible pump so you don't have to buy a $60 hole saw. We can also special order you an undrilled skimmer if you would rather install a 3" or 4" bulkhead of your own. Please call for that option. Price is the same as the drilled. (206) 350-7580

Has an 8" x 8" x 8" basket that debris is compacted into due to the design of the Helix Skimmer. Longer debris baskets (16" and 24") can be purchased separately when using an external pump only. For a submersible pump, a new basket plate with a large capacity net can be purchased.

The Helix Skimmer - Plumbed for External Pump will come with a basket plate where the hole for the basket is closer to the opening of the skimmer. This way you are able to use a longer leaf basket if desired. It is also recommended then to use the Helix compact check valve assembly for easy installation.

* Any flow over 5000 GPH it is not recommended to have the Matala Filter Pad installed as it can starve the pump from getting enough water and in return cause the pump to overheat.
