Faircloth Skimmers for basins release the cleanest water.
The Faircloth Skimmer® surface drain floats on the surface of the sediment basin as it fills and drains, releasing the cleanest water in the basin instead of draining from the bottom as conventional outlets do. The skimmer drains the basin slowly over several days and at a constant rate to maximize settling. The adjustable orifice regulates the filling and drawdown of the basin and improves basin efficiency.
Extensive information on use of the Faircloth Skimmer® surface drain is available on our web site at www.FairclothSkimmer.com. Use our sizing calculator to determine the appropriate skimmer and orifice size for your project - just enter the volume of the basin in cubic feet and the number of days to dewater. Skimmer and orifice sizes should be specified on the Erosion and Sediment Control Plan for each basin. Also available is a complete manual on the Faircloth Skimmer® as well as short instructions sheets with practical advice on placing and attaching the skimmer to the riser or a separate pipe through the dam.
