Reinstalling skimmer in pond
I have a 1000 gallon pond with a skimmer and Biofalls. Both of these were installed Ã¢ÂÂinside the pondÃ¢ÂÂ. In other words, both have the line underneath them, rather than attached to the front. The skimmer has shifted over time and now has risen a few inches. This is causing me issues when the water level drops slightly. The skimmer is also not securely attached, and can move up/down. Does anyone have any suggestions for dropping the skimmer a few inches? I was hoping there was an easy way to block off the front of the pond where the skimmer is, re-excavate the skimmer area, and re-install the skimmer, or possibly dig behind/underneath the skimmer and let it drop down.
We have Koi that have been in the pond since we had it installed 13 years ago, and donÃ¢ÂÂt want to harm them by draining the pond, and/or placing them in holding tanks.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
