The Skamper-Ramp is designed to be installed in your pool, water trough or water storage tank in order to allow egress to any animal, from frogs to cats to dogs, that willingly or unwittingly happens to enter.
The plastics that are used for all Skamper-Ramps will not yellow, will not become scummy, will not grow barnacles, mildew or algae even if left in water (salt water, fresh water, pool water…) continuously. Skamper-Ramps always have been, and always will be, made completely from recyclable materials. Skamper-Ramps are lightweight with excellent strength-to-weight ratios (they can hold up to 200 lbs), are low-cost, and have simple snap-together assembly. The ramp braces to the vertical side of the pool, walled pond, stock tank / water trough to prevent unwanted wild animals from drowning as well as pets!
Other than the ‘usual’ pool and walled pond uses, a unique application for the original Skamper-ramp is in stock tanks and water troughs; leaving a Skamper-ramp in the tanks or troughs assures that horses and livestock are not drinking from water polluted with drowned, diseased and decaying critters that got in but couldn’t get out of steep walled tanks and troughs.
Skamper-ramps are white because most living beings see white and animals can see it day or night, and, even if they can’t use a step (ducklings, snakes, frogs, baby possums), they can “skamper” out of the water ,using the ramp, by themselves!
