Surface skimmers are the ever-vigilant helpers that remove leaves and debris from the water surface. The incorporation of surface skimmers to your pond environment will ensure that you are doing everything necessary to keep your pond healthy and safe from the harmful buildup of decaying organic matter.
The SwimSkim surface skimmer will do the hard work for you! It offers strong suction, does not require a separate pump and is ideal for retrofitting. Its powerful suction cleans a pond surface (coverage up to 270 square ft.). The SwimSkim floats along the surface of your pond, removing large debris. It is easy to use - just plug it in and drop it in your pond. It automatically adapts to any water level (from 16-inch water depth). The integrated aerator oxygenates your pond. The SwimSkim surface skimmer is designed to draw debris from the surface of the water for a prettier view and a healthier pond.
AERATES YOUR WATER
In addition to removing leaves and debris from the water surface, the SwimSkim also improves water quality by increasing water circulation as well as air injection. This product truly is a 2 in 1 combination, and it combines two important features: cleaning and aeration.
The SwimSkim floating in-pond skimmer is the ideal addition or retrofit to any pond. The SwimSkim can be installed in any existing pond without modification or cutting into the liner. Not having to cut into your pond liner to install the SwimSkim makes it an ideal choice for those who are trying to tackle the problem of cleaning the pond surface with minimal to no modifications.

- skimmer basket
- ponds surface area
Buying a pond skimmer, I already expected to have to empty out the basket everyday. However this pond skimmer sometimes positions itself wrong and stops working until you go out there and drown it under the water which can cause any stuck debri to go back into your water. This isn't too much effort, but it does mean I have to check on it several times a day to make sure it's actually working. When it does work though, it does a good job.
Easy to clean the skimmer basket and get back to working!
the skimmer is exactly what i was looking for. thank you. The problem is I ordered one and 2 come in the mail. I would like to return one. thank you.
I love that it is larger enough to handle my ponds surface area and yet small enough to be concealed easily.
A friend recommended that I try one of these skimmers on my pond. I was skeptical as it is a rather large pond and I didn't think such a small skimmer would be effective. This skimmer does a marvelous job, very efficient. It does require daily maintenance to clean the basket, but it only takes a moment and removes a fair amount of litter that would otherwise sink and become debris.
