The Astral Stainless Steel Skimmer Body is made from AISI 316 Stainless Steel. The designed flow rate for the skimmer is 7.5m3/hr. This is a front entry skimmer designed to take the Astral Skimmer Basket – 07521 (not included). Front entry skimmers offer many benefits in term of asthetics for the swimming pool and surround. A continous surround finnish can be used without cut outs – like would be needed for abs skimmers. The skimmer baskets are bright polished with a mirror like finish. Stainless steel shell fittings offer a luxury finish to your pool project. The major benefit of this type of shell fitting is they will last for the life of the swimming pool. The A-202 model is the smaller of the two on offer from Astral. It is their standard skimmer. The larger A-201 has room to house an automatic top device.

This Astral Skimmer has ‘tangs’ to enable it to be tied into the steel work. The skimmer would then be cast in the concrete wall.
This Astral Skimmer has a 63mm suction off the bottom, but also benefits from an overflow pipe. This can be used if required or capped off. If using an automatic top up we would always recommend using at least 1 overflow – especially for an indoor pool..
