HydroSieve™ Professional Compact Satellite Pond Skimmer
EASY TO CLEAN, FISH FRIENDLY, and REMOTE INSTALLATION CAPABLE
The HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmer is fish-safe, provides multiple design options with its ability to be installed away from the pond, and is the easiest compact pond skimmer to clean – never requiring you to put your hands into the water. Multiple Hydro Sieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmers can be connected to just one centrifugal pump and placed in multiple places around the pond for maximum pond skimming efficiency.
This compact satellite pond skimmer’s stainless steel filter basket traps debris down to human hair size for exceptional pond skimming debris capture. The HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmer’s internal vortex water flow design maintains water flow as the stainless steel filter basket fills with debris.

Fish-Safe HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmers are the only satellite pond skimmers with an integrated 4" round inlet pipe that eliminates the need for a weir door to achieve efficient and effective pond skimming. The weir doors found on virtually all competing pond skimmers are essentially a "one-way-door" that can trap your fish inside the pond skimmer.
Those types of pond skimmers also use dozens of screws to hold the weir door faceplate onto the skimmer itself - and those same screws extend into the skimmer and pose a hazard to the fish that get trapped inside the pond skimmer. As the fish struggles with its capture - it often inflicts fatal harm to itself on those screws. With HydroClean™ pond skimmers your fish can swim in and back out again with ease - and with no screws inside the pond skimmer - there is nothing that can pose a danger to your beloved fish.
HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmer
The HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmer provides highly efficient pond skimming with centrifugal pump flow rates up to 3,500 gph in a small footprint – only 16½” wide! The unobtrusive pond skimmer lid resembles an irrigation valve box and is easily hidden within the landscape.
The HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmer's integrated 4" round inlet pipe attaches directly to PVC or ABS pipe for remote installation at any length you choose. No other satellite pond skimmer has these remote installation capabilities.
When you move the pond skimmer away from the pond - you'll have a much more natural looking pond. Nothing ruins the look of a pond more than a pond skimmer sitting on the pond edge. Landscaping or a seating area between the pond and pond skimmer makes for a much more natural looking pond.
This competing pond-side satellite pond skimmer is not only NOT FISH SAFE with its weir door, it requires a dozen screws that require a dozen tiny holes in the liner that can leak over time - this skimmer can not be installed away from the pond.
Pond-side pond skimmers ruin the natural appearance of the pond.
Dry-Hands Servicing means you'll never have to put your hands down into the pond water to clean your HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmer. The large capacity stainless steel filter basket handle is fully accessible above the water line.
Why is that important? In fall and winter months when you're emptying your pond skimmer the most .... what temperature do you think the water will be? Also, if you have to reach down into the water to remove a filter pad or something similar - you'll have to bend over farther! More than likely you'll have to put a knee on the ground - in winter the ground can be wet or frozen.
We have designed each of our pond skimmers
with YOU in mind!
Why bend over any farther than necessary?
You Get The Most Design Options for Your Pond
with HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmers
Economical Pond Skimming Capabilities. For odd-shaped ponds with contours that require multiple pond skimmers for ideal skimming – multiple HydroSieve™ compact pond skimmers can be used in satellite locations around the pond and connected to just one pump. The HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmer’s unique integrated round inlet pipe provides you with the option to install the pond skimmer directly on, or away from the pond’s edge. The HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmer’s integrated 4″ round inlet pipe attaches directly to PVC, flexible PVC, or ABS pipe for remote installation at any length you choose. No other compact pond skimmer has these remote installation capabilities.
Quick and Easy Liner Attachment Pond liner attaches to the HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmer like all HydroClean™ pond skimmers … with a simple “One-Nut” liner collar. Unlike typical pond skimmers that use a weir door faceplate with dozens of screws to secure pond liner to the skimmer, the HydroSieve™ locks pond liner to itself, or remote installation pipe with a rubber collar and just one Stainless Steel nut on the Stainless Steel collar clamp. This drastically reduces the installation time, and frustration. The typical pond skimmer faceplate screws penetrate the pond liner in dozens of small holes that can eventually leak when they tear open due to liner settling over time. The HydroSieve™ liner collar prevents these type of leaks.
Remote Installation means you can install the HydroSieve™ Compact Satellite Pond Skimmer away from the pond with PVC, flexible PVC, or ABS pipe. The pipe attaches to the skimmer with a rubber coupler, then liner attaches to the other end of the pipe instead of the pond skimmer itself. Your pond will be much more natural looking with an “invisible” pond skimmer hidden within the landscape and not on the pond itself.

The Problems with Today’s Conventional Pond Skimmers
- They're Hard to Clean
- They're Difficult to Install
- They're Not Safe For Your Fish
- They Ruin the Appearance of Your Pond
- They Require Special Tools to Install
- They're Not Auto Fill Valve Ready
- They're Not Ready For Multiple Pumps and Overflow Pipe
With today’s conventional pond skimmers, you must get down on your hands and knees, reach down into the water inside the pond skimmer and pull up the debris filled net or plastic basket and heavy, smelly, saturated filter pad. Not only heavy and foul-smelling, these items will be filled with algae, fish poop, dead insects and worms, and all kinds of debris you wouldn’t want to touch.
When considering the purchase of a pond skimmer,
one of the most important questions to ask yourself is:
“How will I clean it?”
HydroClean™ Professional Pond Skimmers are EASY TO CLEAN!
HydroClean™ Professional Pond Skimmers feature large capacity Stainless Steel framed debris nets and the highest quality Black Knight filter brushes to capture that above-mentioned “stuff”. Both the net and brushes have clean, dry handles above the waterline! You won’t have to get on your hands and knees to reach down into the water to pull a dirty filter pad out! Simply lift either the net or brush rack out of the HydroClean™ Professional Pond Skimmer and rinse them off – it couldn’t be easier! No hands in the water, and no knees on the ground!
Pond-Side Pond Skimmers Ruin the Natural Look of the Pond
Imagine admiring a pond – your eyes follow the edge, and suddenly an obtrusive pond skimmer is right in your view. The natural appearance of the pond is ruined. HydroClean™ Professional Pond Skimmers feature Remote Installation Capabilities and are the only pond skimmers that can attach to standard PVC, flexible PVC, or ABS pipe and be placed away from the pond’s edge. Imagine a pleasant patio, walkway, or seating area next to the pond, and the pond skimmer behind you – out of view from the pond!
Why ruin the look of your pond with an unattractive "pond-side" skimmer?
Conventional Pond Skimmers are Difficult to Attach to Pond Liner
Today’s conventional pond skimmers attach to pond liner with square or rectangular face plates and dozens of screws that penetrate the liner. Not only difficult to install, these screws can eventually cause leaks and can damage or harm your beloved fish.
HydroClean™ Professional Pond Skimmers feature a simple one-nut liner attachment – with that nut above the water line – saving you installation time and future headaches!
Typical pond skimmer square or rectangular face plates also feature a floating weir door. Fish can easily swim into a conventional pond skimmer but the weir door prevents them from being able to swim back out. HydroClean™ Professional Pond Skimmers' completely unique round inlet pipe eliminates the need for a weir door, allowing fish that swim into the pond skimmer and swim right back out. Your fish will thank you!
Installing and Modifying Conventional Pond Skimmers Requires Specialty Tools
Don’t own Channel Lock pliers? You’ll need to buy them in order to install most of today’s typical pond skimmers. Don’t have a hole saw? You’ll need to buy one in order to install some of today’s typical pond skimmers – and you’ll need one if you want to modify the pond skimmer to accommodate multiple pumps, an auto water fill valve, or additional plumbing options. HydroClean™ Professional Pond Skimmers can be installed with just a screw driver! No need to modify HydroClean™ Professional Pond Skimmers for multiple pumps, an auto fill valve, or multiple plumbing options …. they are all integrated into pond skimmer! PVC fittings and auto water fill valves simply thread directly into the female threaded fittings on each HydroClean™ pond skimmer. With HydroClean™ …. it couldn’t be easier!
