I was Tired of collecting Duck Weed every day so come up with idea of a simple cheap skimmer for my little pond There was NO need to make it look nice cause it will seat in the place were no body can see it So i had some old aquarium pump 600 lph 25l water container i'v cut the top of the container, drilled hole on the side of it closest bottom as possible fit a pump in the drilled hole, cowered everything with a window net to keep dirt of a pump then load some stones in it to stop it from floating Skimmer seats on the shallow bottom of the pond leveled so water gets through little door skimming surface of pond from little rubbish etc.
ITS BEEN TWO YEARS AND THAT SKIMMER STILL WORKS IN MY POND !!!
It works so well after a while iv replaced little pump with 1200 lpa make bigger entrance for leaves and stick
I'm putting it on only one o twice a week during a summer and pond is always cllean
Nothing can be simple as that as long you got shallow water somewhere where no one can see it Thank you for watching and post video of your idea of SKIMMER ON A BUDGET
