SkimDoctor 2.0

SKIMDOCTOR USES SEVERAL PHYSICS PRINCIPLES TO CREATE A VORTEX IN YOUR SKIMMER AND INCREASE SURFACE WATER VELOCITY.

 

First, the slots in the inner tube of SkimDoctor 2.0 is partially responsible for speeding up the flow of water, precisely the flow of surface water, in your skimmer. By forcing water to flow through SkimDoctor’s narrow slot, SkimDoctor increases the top surface speed.

 

In more technical terms, when water moves from a wider channel to a narrow channel, the volume of the water that moves a given distance in a given time period does not change, however, the speed of the water increases. This phenomenon is called the Bernoulli principle and explains why water flows quickly in white water rapids when rocks narrow the width of the water channel. In addition, the SkimDoctor 2.0 tube itself forces water to flow around the tube in two directions, thereby narrowing the water channel, and creating a three-fold Bernoulli effect.

 

Most all debris enters through the top surface of the water. Because SkimDoctor increases surface water speed, debris is drawn more quickly into your basket, which may allow you to run your pump less. It’s important to remember that water velocity and energy savings are only some of the benefits of SkimDoctor. SkimDoctor also prevents you from having to put your hand through all the gunk to remove the basket. SkimDoctor also increases the storage capacity of your basket.
