A pond skimmer can help reduce your workload and keep your pond clean for you to relax and enjoy. Its main function is to remove debris that falls into the water. Most debris, such as leaves and pollen, sits on top of the water for a while before it becomes waterlogged and sinks to the bottom. The pond skimmer sits just at the top edge of the water table. A pump inside draws water into the skimmer; and the flapping door on the outside, called the weir, creates surface tension to keep the water flowing smoothly into the skimmer. The water is filtered through a small-mesh net, which catches large debris, such as leaves.
