The Grande Skimmer is the largest skimmer Aquascape makes!

Classic Series Skimmers

(Large and Standard Skimmers are being discontinued for 2009 - Ask for Availablity)

Aquascape's family of field proven, time tested skimmers are the #1 selling skimmer in the water garden filter marketplace!

Why? Because they work!

No gizmos and gadgets designed by engineers behind a desk, but rather functional, easy to install and maintain filters designed by actual pond builders.

Includes a lid, filter mat*, skimmer rack, debris net and rack, and fittings

6" and 8" weir openings for the discontinued Standard Skimmers and 15" Weir for Grande Skimmer. 

Grande Skimmer handles up to two 10,000 GPH pumps (20,000 GPH max).

(Grande Skimmer has no Filter Mat but can be retro-fitted with Filter Mats by using a very simple PVC pipe that you can put together in 25 minutes  - Read the PondMeister's Blog "My Grande Skimmer has no Filter Mat. Say What?" Ask us for Details at 805-241-0141)

Large Skimmer handles pumps from 4,000 GPH to 10,000 GPH

Standard Skimmer is the same size as large skimmer, but with 6" weir opening.

Handles pumps from 1,000 GPH to 4,000 GPH 

 * Grande does not require filter mats
