Blue Thumb Elite Skimmers

The toughest, strongest, easiest-to-install skimmers on the market today! The first line of defense against floating debris for any pond is the Pond Skimmer. If reducing maintenance and protecting the life of your pond pump are important to you, then investing in a Pond Skimmer is key.

The pond pump, which is located inside of the skimmer, draws water into the skimmer opening, mechanically filtering out leaves, twigs, and other floating garden pond debris, trapping the debris inside a net and filter pad.

These Elite Skimmers are contractor-grade products. They are 38% thicker and have ribs and gussets molded into them, preventing distortion once installed. Elite Skimmers include an automatic fill valve fitting molded into the side of the skimmer (optional autofill valve kit sold separately). They also feature an overflow fitting located on the back of the skimmer to remove excess water fill due to heavy rain.

Elite Skimmers Include:

  • Skimmer Unit
  • Detachable Snout/Door
  • Natural Cover Lid
  • Green Matala Mat
  • Mesh Leaf Net
  • Stainless Screws
  • Screw Caps
  • Clips
  • Rubber Uni-Seals for 2" discharge points
  • Plumbing Fittings for Overflow
  • Pre-plumbed autofill spinweld with plug
  • Silicone
  • Installation Instructions
  • 5 Year Warranty

Elite Skimmers are Made in the USA.
