Dirt and contaminants your pool filter can’t catch or doesn’t get still needs to be remove from the pool, and the best way to do that is using a pool net skimmer and other cleaning equipment such as a vacuum head.
There are two types of pool skimmers, wall skimmers and hand-held skimmer. First, a wall skimmer sucks in circulating pool water and whatever floating debris, capturing larger debris like bugs and leaves in its skimmer basket, then sending the water through the pool filter system to remove smaller particles. Wall skimmers essentially look and operate the same for in-ground and above ground pools. Above ground pool wall skimmers are often referred to as through-wall skimmers, like In the Swim’s wide mouth through wall skimmer and our low-profile through-wall skimmer since they use the rigidity of the metal pool wall for support. Above ground skimmers are highly effective and durable while being very inexpensive. As for in-ground pool skimmers, it’s important to know that some skimmers such as Hayward’s 1.5 inch auto-skim skimmer are designed for concrete pools while others like the Hayward 2-inch in-ground skimmer are for fiberglass and vinyl pools, the main difference being the length of the skimmer’s throat. There are accessories like a skimmer winter plug for in-ground pools and the skimmer winter plug for above ground pools which create a water-tight seal so you close your pool for the season without draining the water. The Skim It skimmer arm cuts hand skimming your pool by up to 75%. The Skim It snaps into the pool skimmer’s mouth and extends out into the pool to grab more surface debris like leaves. When swimmers are in the pool, the skimmer arm folds back flat with the pool wall.
Hand-held skimmers, or leaf skimmers, are essentially a net on an aluminum pool pole best used to fish out floating leaves and bugs. The hand held skimmer sometimes attaches to an adjustable telescoping pole for a longer reach into larger pools. A heavier-duty net skimmer, also called a leaf rake, utilizes a net that forms a deep pocket, making it easier to scoop out more leaves, twigs and other larger debris or obstacles that may be in your pool. While most pool poles are just fine for residential pool use, Skimlite makes professional dual-lock telescoping poles that are super-strong and lightweight with a comfortable, rugged handle for fast work.
Vacuum heads and hoses are an economical and easy way to scour your pool’s floor and walls. Using the pool’s filter system, vacuum heads like the Clearview triangular vacuum head attaches to a pool pole and can get into corners to suck up dirt, algae and other gunk from the pool floor and walls, sending the debris through the connected standard 1.5 inch pool vacuum hose to the pool filter. For concrete in-ground pool owners, our concrete vacuum head with brushes uses wheels to glide over the bottom to suck up dirt and algae, while the brushes knock dirt out from creases and corners. Vacuum heads for concrete pools can get pretty complex, such as In the Swim’s professional flexible concrete vacuum head that can cut your pool cleaning time in half. And to make your pool maintenance routine easier and more convenient, check out the pool vacuum hose reel that rolls up vac hoses, making them much more manageable and less likely to be tripped over.
We all know cleaning your pool obviously isn’t nearly as playing in it, but regular, thorough pool maintenance is an absolute necessity. You should always consider the proper pool equipment, supplies and accessories when stocking your pool. Having a good wall skimmer, vacuum head, pool hoses and leaf net in your cleaning arsenal will help keep your pool looking great and last longer for your enjoyment.
