Easily retrofit your existing pond with this skimmer unit. Effectively removes floating leaves from the surface. It has a large basket strainer capacity. The float weir allows varied pond water level.
Requires water suction from intake side of a pump to operate. Minimum flow rate is 800 GPH.
Requires a 1-1/2" minimum side wall or floor port to "tap into" suction side of pump.
A rigid or flexible liner can be retrofitted to use this skimmer by adding a bulkhead fitting to the wall or floor of a pond (for proper positioning in pond).
The float ring weir has up to 5-1/2" of vertical travel to allow for water level changes; ie: filter back-flushes, water changes and waves created by waterfall.
The skimmer has a 2" NPT female thread in the bottom of the skimmer for suction line hook up.
Black or White in Color - Black is best for ponds and White is best for swimming pools.
SPECIAL NOTE: Black No Niche Skimmer Includes a White Basket - This is how they are coming from the factory and they don't expect the baskets to be black again for some time.
