Skimmerfilter Combines 4 Types of Filtration
Undoubtedly the hardest working gardening product in your pond, the Savio Skimmerfilter® dramatically reduces pond maintenance while blending seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. Combining four types of filtration for superior pond water clarity - its all-in-one approach reduces plumbing and eliminates the need for extra plumbing and equipment. All four systems work in harmony, in one easy-to-install unit that saves you time and money.
UV Filtration - Savio Skimmerfilters® are the only skimmers on the market with a patented integrated UV system (sold separately) - a safe, chemical-free way to eliminate green water.
Skimming Action - Pulls debris from the surface of the water, capturing in a rigid leaf basket with handle for clean, no-mess disposal
Biological Filtration - Filter media provides a surface for beneficial bacteria to colonize the skimmerfilter, converting biological waste from fish, ammonia and other toxins to inert forms for healthier ponds.
Mechanical Filtration - The skimmerfilter protects and extends the life of your pump, providing a place to conceal ugly equipment and plumbing. When used with a biological filtration system, the skimmer prefilters debris allowing your filter to work more efficiently.
The skimmerfilters super strong injection molded housing and cylindrical design resists warping and compaction in the ground, winning the approval of landscape and irrigation professionals everywhere. The SS0000 is large enough to accommodate a large submersible pump or two medium size pumps. The Savio Skimmerfilter® works as a Complete Filtration Solution for ponds up to 1,000 gallons (or use with a Savio Livingponds Filter for larger water features and still enjoy the same clean, clear water).

Haven't installed it yet, but skimmer arrived quickly and was packaged very well. Emails kept me up to date on shipping progress.
great skimmer. I ended up swapping out the standard filter for a matala green filter mat which I like a little better since I can get additional flow through. It is nice and sturdy construction and easy to install
Made well. Sturdy, and does a good job filtering the pond
This is a good quality skimmer. It's build very sturdy.
