Skimmer Suction Assembly 1-1/2 inch
Use this plumbing assembly to connect your above ground pump to your pond skimmer (via an 1- 1/2" rigid or flexible PVC suction line).
Complete with a frog guard suction strainer, gate valve, 1-1/2" PVC bulkhead fitting and threaded male adapter, this plumbing assembly attaches to the suction line and through the side of the skimmer. The basket strainer helps prevent clogs in the suction line from leaves and trapped frogs, while the gate valve allows you to temporarily shut off suction to the skimmer while performing routine maintenance such as emptying the skimmer net or hosing off the skimmer filter pad. This plumbing assembly is designed to fit inside most larger skimmer enclosures, such as the Atlantic Big Bahama 7000 Skimmer. Entire assembly measures 16"-18" in length.
Note: If your skimmer suction pipe/tube is 2" in diameter, you will need to add a 2" x 1-1/2" reducer fitting between your suction line and the 1-1/2" male adapter that is included as part of this assembly.
