Product Information

Swell's Pond Skimmer 3000 is a quality pond surface skimmer that will be an excellent addition for any garden pond. Leaves, uneaten food and general floating pond debris will sink to the base of the pond where it can pollute the pond water, thus resulting in a potential water quality/clarity problem. By straining the debris before it sinks this pond surface skimmer assists with keeping your pond water clear and healthy.

The Swell Pond Skimmer 3000 simply floats on the waters surface and water is drawn to the skimmer inlet via the built in pump, water is then passed through the skimmer basket and strainer where the debris is collected. Simply empty the basket regularly to remove the debris from the pond and ensures continuous skimming operation. The skimmer can be simply anchored to the side of the pond with a piece of string (not supplied), or allow it to free float.

Suitable for ponds with a surface area of up to 20m² and the 3000 LPH pump in the base of the skimmer also creates additional water movement that can help stop dead spots in the pond.

    I am not sure if this product was faulty or just not up to the job it was supposed to do. I have tried to run this skimmer for 2 days now and my experience is as follows:

    1) Requires constant attention - The adjust ring, designed to float just under the surface repeatedly sinks too far resulting in a flow so weak that it is ineffective. Manually lifting the ring rectifies this but only temporarily.
    2) Even when temporarily working, the strength of the suction attracts debris from no further away than a foot or so.
    3) Larger debris and 'dry' debris simple swirls around above the unit as the suction is not strong enough to pull it down into the collection cup. Medium sized debris which is pulled down passes through the strainer and blocks up the the top of the pump and smaller debris simply passes straight through and is ejected back into the pond.

    To sum up, whether faulty or badly designed, it simply does not do the job it is supposed to do.

    The skimmer works well, the only comment I would make is that a tether line was supplied with the skimmer, but there is no provision to secure the tether line to the skimmer. It does require a tether line as the pump wants to move it to the end of the pond. I am trying different options at the moment, but if there is a proven option I would like to know.
