Product Description

Savio Pond Compact Skimmerfilter


Proof that excellence does come in small sizes, the Savio Compact Skim merfilter® is based on the best-selling Savio Skimmerfilter®. Reducing pond maintenance, while blending with the surrounding landscape, the Compact Skimmerfilter® collects debris, clears water, and hides unsightly pumps. This mighty skimmer delivers dynamic multi-stage filtration for smaller ponds and water features, providing a complete filtration system for ponds up to 700 gallons, and a skimming solution for ponds up to 2,500 gallons. Like its larger predecessor, it combines four types of filtration for optimal water quality: skimming, mechanical, biological, and UV filtration. 

UV Filtration - Savio Skimmerfilters® are the only skimmers on the market with a patented integrated UV system (sold separately) - a safe, chemical free way to eliminate green water.

Skimming Action - Pulls debris from the surface of the water, capturing in a rigid leaf basket with handle for clean, no mess disposal.

Biological Filtration - Two filter media cartridges provide a surface for beneficial bacteria to colonize the skimmerfilter, converting biological waste from fish, ammonia and other toxins to inert forms for healthier ponds.

Mechanical Filtration - The skimmerfilter protects and extends the life of your pump, providing a place to conceal ugly equipment and plumbing. When used with a biological filtration system, the skimmer prefilters debris allowing your filter to work more efficiently. 

Although compact in size compared to the larger Skimmerfilter®, it still boasts the same durable, injection-molded housing that has won the acclaim of landscape professionals everywhere. Like the Skimmerfilter®, this all-in-one approach eliminates the need for extra plumbing and equipment, while reducing plumbing. 

Two faceplate assemblies (sold separately) are available to accommodate a variety of pump sizes.

Product Code (Base Unit) CS0000

A great thing just got smaller. Designed on our best-selling Skimmerfilter platform, the Compact Skimmerfilter provides dynamic multi-stage filtration in a smaller package.
