When you want to install a pond in your backyard, what materials do you need? The answer may seem obvious: just dig a big hole, line it with some stones, and fill it with water. The addition of fish and grass might be a good touch, and decorative features like waterfalls and lighting can spice it up further. What more could you need?
Plenty more, as it turns out. Everything mentioned above is rather surface-level, but the pond needs certain fixtures to make it actually function. One such product is the pond skimmer. We have written in the past about how pond skimmers keep the pond clean. Here, we will go into greater detail and explain everything you need to know about them.
