SUITABILITY.

When the surface area / Volume of pond / pool are of average proportion.

The Standard is generally suitable for up to approx. 4500 gls.(20,000 ltrs.)

And the wide mouth generally over 4500 gls.(20,000 ltrs.)

The main factor to take into account is the overall area of pond or pool as it is only the surface of the water being skimmed and not the total pond water.

Can be fitted to concrete /fibreglass or liner


PUMP SIZING.

The length diameter ( 1.1/4? - 1.1/2? min ) and type of the pipe used plus any system head loss will have a huge effect on the overall performance.

Where reasonably short low head loss pipe work is involved and on relatively small set ups The skimmer will actually work with a fairly small pump with a rated delivery spec.as low as (2000 Ltrs/hr @ max. head around 2 ? 3 mtrs). This would necessitate being run at a head of about 0.5 mtr max to work.

At the upper end especially with higher head losses somewhere around 6000 - 10.000 Ltrs/hr would be needed. Plus of course the larger the pump the better the skim.

The layout of your system plus surface area , and the amount of debris your pond/pool collects, will also have a bearing on the size of the pump required. (The surface area is more relevant than total volume of water)

Therefore as a general overview a pump anywhere between 2000 and 10,000 Ltrs / hr would be required depending on individual set ups.

The suitability of any pump in our opinion has to be a balance between initial costs balanced against running costs.

Budget priced pumps normally have higher running / maintenance costs and are not always the best choice,

The Sequence and Aquamax range of pumps ( although higher initial cost ) do score very well in this area being low wattage and therefore cheap to run and also reasonably reliable. They are also a very popular choice for this type of application.
