About the Aquosis SK 1 Skimmer
The Aquosis SK 1 Skimmer has two pipes coming verticaly out the pond, one is the suction to be connected to the pump inlet, the other is the return from the pump. The image opposite clearly shows the inlet where the water enters the pond, this can be adjusted to give you the perfect flow direction.
The Aquosis SK 1 Skimmer comes with two pipe clips, which need fixing to the Coping stones to hold the skimmer in place. The vertical pipes you can see can be cut if required, or can be extended using Straight Unions if required, two 90 degree bends are also supplied with the unit.
Push the 90 degree bends on to the vertical flow and return pipes, insert the two short lengths of pipes supplied in to the bends. Cut these to the required lengths and then secure in place by using the pipe clips.
Prior to glueing make ensure that all pipework is cut to the required lengths. We even supply you with the glue!
The Aquosis SK 1 Skimmer comes complete with the hose tails or unions as an alternative to glue on to the open end of each horizontal pipe.
The returning water can pass through a filtration system or directly via the skimmer to the pond. This creates a current for your koi and moves the surface water to maximise the skimmer's efficiency.
Please Note: SK-1 Skimmer comes complete with 1.5L Strainer Basket as standard.
