Pond Skimmer – Skimmer pools are an important part of koi ponds or water parks and are an important choice when considering the construction of an outdoor swimming pool. Like all products, there are many brands and sizes of skimmers to choose from. The factors that determine the size, number and brand include the size and shape of the pond, how many fish, and how many leaves in the pond. The main purpose of a skimmer pool is to remove debris and amino acids from the surface of the water before they have the opportunity to break down and pollute the water.
Skimming action is made by a face plate or weir that has a floating door. The reason for floating doors is to ensure that most of the water entering the skimmer is pulled from the surface of the water at different water levels. From there water passes through a net or basket to catch large debris and can be emptied easily. Then the water flows through the filter sieve mechanical filter or filter sieve. Because it functions as a mechanical filter and also provides biological filtration.
The next water phase is a pump room which usually holds a main pump or pump for a pond where the pump is pumped to the end of a pond, waterfall or flow that flows into the pond. It is important that the skimmer and water return to the opposite side of the pond to ensure good flow of water to the entire surface area of the pond without the flood area.
