The Standard Savio Skimmerfilter

The standard Savio Skimmerfilter is dubbed the “hardest working” pond skimmer on the market.  Will easily blend into the surrounding with a black lid that can easily be hidden.  

Combines all four methods of filtration to provide you with the best possible water quality.  This all-in-one skimmer design gets rid of the need for additional plumbing that would be need in standard skimmers.  The four filtration methods work together to save you money and time.  As well as ease of installation.

Skimming Action – Creates surface tension to suck debris from the ponds surface and into the rigid leaf basket.  Includes a easy to use handle for simple disposal. 

Biological Filtration – The Skimmerfilter has filter media that proves surface area for beneficial bacteria.  These bacteria are what helps convert fish waste into useable nutrients for a healthy pond ecosystem. 

Mechanical Filters – Will protect and extend the life of your pond pump by pre-filtering debris.  This allows your main waterfall filter to work as designed.  Also provides a place to hide the pump and plumbing.

UV Filtration – The only skimmer on the market that has a patented UV system integrated into the design.  UV light provides a chemical free and safe way to control green pond water

Savio Excellence pond skimmer is designed with a cylindrical design that resists warping like a box shaped skimmer may.  Which makes it stand the test of time. 

The Savio SS0000 Skimmerfilter will provide enough space for one large pump, or two medium sized pumps.  

Sized for excellent filtration for ponds 1,000 gallons or smaller.  If you’re pond is larger you should add additional filtration such as a wetland filter. 

Note: There are three Savio faceplates available (sold separate) for the Skimmerfilter to work with a range of pump flow rates.

Savio Compact Skimmerfilter

The Savio Compact Skimmerfilter is designed on the standard Skimmerfilter above, but with a more compact size.   Helping to reduce maintenance, collecting debris, and filtering water.

Compact Skimmerfilters can skim ponds up to 10,000 gallons and provides complete filtration for ponds 1500 gallons and less (no other pond filters needed).  If more filtration is needed you can always add another filter.  

Savio CS0000 Skimmerfilter gives you mechanical, biological, UV filtration, and skimming action you can depend on.
