EASYPRO ECO-SERIES POND SKIMMERS INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
EasyPro Eco-Series Pond Skimmer Installation Manual - Printable PDF Version
STEP ONE - DESIGN AND EXCAVATION
Layout the pond. Position the skimmer opposite your waterfall for best skimming action, preferably in a corner where there will be extra liner.
Dig a pocket for the skimmer on the edge of the pond. Over dig the pocket by at least 4" in all directions to ensure plenty of room for the skimmer.
Level the pocket in all directions. Establish the water level for the pond, then the proper placement and height for the skim- mer.
STEP TWO - INSTALLING LINER AND UNDERLAYMENT
Before installing the underlayment, be sure to check over the pond bottom really well to get rid of any sharp rocks, sticks or any other object that could puncture the liner.
Carefully install the protective underlayment. Work the wrinkles out of the bottom of the pond. Lay folds fl at against the side wall. Repeat for the liner. Again, work the wrinkles out of the pond floor. Lay the liner neatly in the pocket for the skimmer.
STEP THREE - INSTALLING THE SKIMMER
Finish stacking stones up the front of the skim- mer. Place the stones on the horizontal ledges to help lock in the skimmer. Use stone to conceal the skimmer door opening.
Hook up the check valve assembly to the pump and install the pump in the skimmer. Hook up the fl ex pipe to the check valve assembly. Install the fi lter mat divider and the leaf basket into the skimmer. Plug the pump into a GFCI protected outlet. Place the cover on top, and enjoy.
HOW IT WORKS...
Pond maintenance begins and ends at the skimmer. 90% of debris is wind blown or falls from trees.
Capturing surface debris before it becomes water logged and settles to the bottom of the pond lessens clean-outs, eliminates decomposing matter, lightens the load on your Bio fi lter, keeps water clearer and prevents discolored water. A surface skimmer helps eliminate area’s where diseases, anaerobic bacterias and pathogens thrive.
