Thank you for purchasing the Eco-Series Tempo Skimmer. You are about to experience the Eco-Series difference in water feature products, components that are simply designed for the do-it-yourselfer. The simple design of all Eco-Series products provide you with reliable, trouble free installation and maintenance for all your water feature designs.

STEP ONE

The first step when installing the Tempo Skimmer in any water garden is selecting the location of the skimmer. Place the skimmer at the opposite end of the waterfall for better circulation, sometimes prevailing winds will dictate the ideal location. The pump connect- ed to the skimmer must be plugged into a weatherproof GFI outlet. The tubing attached to the pump will run from the pump to your waterfall.

INSTALLATION ON PLANT SHELF

Mount pump to either side of skimmer with threaded fitting provided. Plug bottom and opposite end port of skimmer with plugs provided.

Set skimmer and pump on plant shelf, check for correct height. If the skimmer is too low, you may have to use flat stones or brick to correct the height. Ideal water level should be 2/3 up weir window.

Secure skimmer with straps by threading through slots in back of skimmer and through the anchoring pins that are set 6" - 12" away from pond edge behind liner.

Place coping stones on anchor pins and straps. A stone may be used on the top of the skimmer to conceal it.

Mount pump to bottom of skimmer with threaded fitting provided. Plug side ports of skimmer with plugs provided.

Set your anchoring pins, tighten your straps to adjust the height. Place stones on pins, straps and skimmer.

INSTALLATION IN NEW WATER GARDEN

When installing this skimmer in a new pond, you may recess the skimmer in a pre-dug niche. The skimmer will be installed within the liner, using a corner will usually render enough liner for installation. Attach your pump, usually side installation in this situation, set your pins, straps and cover with stones.

MAINTENANCE

Empty skimmer basket of leaves and debris when needed.
