How It Works

Simply toss the skimmer into the water from the bank.
The bottom bar will sink and the top bar will float creating a half circle. Pull the skimmer back towards yourself.
Grab the four ropes and pull the skimmer out of the water. Dump the algae into a wheelbarrow for disposal.

  • Avoids fish kills by ensuring adequate oxygen levels remain.
  • Removes habitat for breeding mosquitoes.
