Product Evaluation and testing ..........Skimmer Guards
Hello, have you ever had your favourite Koi badly damaged or even die as a result from its injuries due to it getting stuck in your skimmer, and then having to place a bit of mesh or similar in front only to find the skimmer is not as efficient.
Well we have, which has led to us to embark on designing and manufacturing something to cure the problem,
AND HERE IT IS the one that really works
The clever bit is using the chevron design. This virtually eliminates water tension on any bar on or near the water level allowing free passage of all surface debris. Anything vertical or horizontal will always prevent total skimming.
The guard itself is manufactured from stainless steel completely at home in both fresh and salt water and will safeguard your fish for many years to come.
All the edges of the guard are polished and honed to an ultra smooth finish
It is so simple to fit and takes just a couple of minutes. All You need to do is remove two of the existing stainless steel screws, offer the guard to the opening and replace the two screws. Its that easy!
**Certikin models** can be a little more awkward and we often need to take some extra dimensions from you over the phone and possibly ask a few questions reference your particular installation.
I am sure you will agree a very small price to pay to insure the Safety and health of you favourite koi, and not to find it Damaged or Stuck in your skimmer
Available for the Standard,Wide Mouth,and Certikin Skimmer
One to fit our new Coastal Extended neck Skimmer is also available Please note the fitting is not quite as straight forward as the standard models above. Depending on how the skimmer is installed the front face may need drilling to align fixing holes with the main body of the skimmer.
