Ponds: Importance of Having a Skimmer Pump

by Aquatics on December 19, 2011


Besides simply powering your filtration system and providing water movement in your aquarium, water pumps can also be used to power other devices such as protein skimmers, to drain or fill your pond.

The Pondmaster ProLine Skimmer pumps are a space saving alternative to our ProLine Hy-drive line of pumps. Based on the same technology, with a stainless steel Impellor at the heart, these amazing pumps will easily fit into the most crowded pond skimmers on the market. Each pump has a footprint of only 5″ x 6″. But saving space didn’t come at the expense of performance or economy,

These Pumps are available in four sizes ranging from 1400 to 6600 gallons per hour. Add to that a maximum height cut off of 30.5 feet and that means these compact workhorses are the pump solution for just about any home waterfall, stream, or filter installation.

If you do not need to position the pump inside the skimmer, that’s ok too. Each unit comes with a heavy nylon pump bag. This will protect the pump from the environment in the pond as it works as a pre-filter to protect the pumps inner workings.

Finally, this pump is backed by the Pondmaster Warranty. All of the new ProLine Skimmer pumps are covered under warranty for 3 years from date of purchase. But we know you will have your pump longer than 3 years, so we also make parts available to repair every pump we sell!

Pumps run 24 hours a day and are the chief piece of equipment responsible for keeping your pond healthy. Read product descriptions carefully to make sure you are making the correct pump choice.

Good to know! I currently live in a no-pets-allowed apartment, so fish are all I get. However I aspire one day to have a house where I can make a nice pond so they don’t have to live in a tank. I’ll definitely make sure I get a skimmer pump WHEN I do get my pond (yes that’s right, “when”).
