Description

The AquaSkim 20 pond skimmer is a high performance pond surface suction skimmer that requires connection to a pump via a length of flexible pipe. The Oase Aquamax Eco Premium Pumps are ideal for operating this skimmer as these feature a secondary inlet allowing suction to be split between the pump and the surface skimmer when feeding a pond filter system.

The large base can be weighted with stones and the telescopic 2 part riser will allow for height adjustment from 550mm (21") to 800mm (31").

The AquaSkim 20 features a 1.2 litre debris basket with a hook ring for access out in the pond. The floating tube sleeve will allow for a depth fluctuation of up to 100mm without affecting the skimmer performance.

This skimmer will cover a pond surface up to 20m² and can accept up to 8000 litres of water per hour, but requires a minimum flow rate of 4000 litres per hour to operate effectively, see the AquaSkim Performance Data Tab above for pump recommendations and minimum flow percentages.

Oase AquaSkim Pond Surface Skimmers - Technical Information

The OASE AquaSkim pond skimmers powerfully and effectively remove debris that floats on the water surface from the garden pond.

Dust, leaves and other pollutants result in pond water becoming saturated with excess external nutrients and water quality issues will occur as a result.

A pond skimmer will stop surface debris from settling on the pond floor and decomposing, preventing siltation, murky water and excess algae producing nutrients.

The Oase AquaSkim pond surface skimmers can account for rise and fall of the water level and can be operated via the secondary inlet of the Oase Aquamax Eco Premium Pond Filter Pumps
