    Wall Skimmers & Parts

    1. 2 years ago
      All inclusive package.
      This unit came complete with seal, trap, vacuum attachment and backwash preventer. The only down side is that the basket does not snap in but dislodged when the pump is turned off. Engineering over site

      NICE replacement skimmer with auto fill...
      I bought this to replace the A/G Wide Mouth Thru-Wall Skimmer (#Z5980) I previously used due to replacing the liner. This skimmer is a one piece construction, which means less assembly time and effort, and less chance to leak. It feels and looks very sturdy. the lid is about the same diameter, buy slightly thinner, but still feels sturdy though. The new gasket is also a one piece design. It overlaps the pool wall and liner, a nice touch! TIP: One need to cut the liner to exactly the same size ... read more as the hole, no overlap, or the liner will wrinkle. A nice add-on is the automatic fill and overflow system. If one connects a standard garden hose (or the screwed-on(!) quick disconnect, which requires an additional part), the adjustment under the lid makes sure the water level will stay the same. There is a 1" overflow exit port, that needs to be connected to a drain. The skimmer flap, that keeps floating debris in the basket, has sliding pins that will lock it in place, not some plastic tabs that break on first removal. The cons: The adjustment with in the auto fill or auto level feels kind of cheap, since it is all made of plastic. The 90 degree over flow exit port is also made out of plastic. I am certain these will not last long. The skimmer basket is not locking in place, which means it can come (floating) up when the pump is off. Bugs will come out of the basket and keep floating behind the flap. But as soon as the pump comes on, the bugs will get sucked into the pump. This defeats the purpose of the basket IMO. Also the lid to get to the auto fill adjustment might be a little tough to remove, depending on the pool, since a pool rail could potentially interfere with clearance needed to open it. Also, if the auto fill assembly ever needs to be removed, there would the hole in the skimmers wall, and there is no plug included, but should be just in case Overall, I do like the skimmer, the design is solid, minus the somewhat flimsy auto fill adjustment. Nice gasket, all other parts like skimmer block off plate, flap and so on are included and seem to work well. A higher quality adjustment, brass drainage port, a plug for the potential hole, and I would have given this skimmer 5 stars.

      Skimmer
      Got this installed a few weeks ago. My pool is second hand from a neighbor so I used a tin snips to open the hole wider. The original holes lined up fine. Had a small leak that was easily fixed with some silicon. The pool is run with by a 3/4 horse motor and it pulls the water down with force so when the flapper is installed it tries to swallow it as well then gulps up air so I had to remove it. Four stars due to the flapper rolling back and covering the drain hole.

      Skimmer is good—return not so much
      Skimmer worked without a hitch. Struggled to get the return to not leak and ended up using our old return.

      Skimer Sock
      This is great and keeps the larger debris from entering you filter pump. It however does not get rid of finer particles of dirt and scum that will be caught by your filter. Do not think you can put this on your skimmer and keep your filter in your pump clean. It is really more helpful in catching the larger depris that is smaller than what the normal skimmer can catch like ants and smaller bug and leaf parts that could go through the strainer basket.

      Fantastic Product — Saves Time
      These filter skimmers make my pool water regularly stay more clear. By putting them on my 2 pool skimmer baskets, I rarely have to open up my pool filter machine to wash out debri from the 4 filter cartridges! Love that! A real time-saver:))

      Fantastic dog fur filter
      I bought this filter to use in my mother-in-laws pool. We take our three labrador retrievers to swim and she was worried about fur getting to the pool filter. Since we have started using the skimmer pool filters no fur has reached the main filter. The fur collects in the filter skimmer baskets and you just rinse it with a house. Fantastic product!

      Great product!
      Purchased this skimmer for our 22 foot above ground pool. It works great and keeps me from having to manually skim the pool all the time of bugs and debris. Wished I had known of this item last year when we set up the pool.

      Perfect solution to a common circulation problem!
      This product does exactly what the video shows and what the company claims. The entire nature of how my 55000 gallon pool circulates has changed. The venturi effect causes a much larger volume of water to be "pushed" as it works. Aiming them at the bottom can even cause the water in the pool to roll, evening out temperatures at all depths. An added bonus is that it can keep debris stirred up on the bottom to be picked up by the skimmers and drain, Well worth the low price.

      Absolutely Amazing
      I purchased these Venturi return fittings in the beginning of the season and i have honestly never seen anything like it. They work exactly as described in the videos, anyone who claims they don't work clearly don't have the proper amount of flow from their filter. This is one of the best purchases i have ever made for my in-ground pool.

      a useful purchase
      I ordered some extra parts because i thought i needed them and when the new skimmer box came all of the extra parts were included with it. The online description should be modified to describe which parts are included with the new skimmer box, so people don't order extra parts that are included.

      Best Skimmer
      Bought this skimmer in replacement of my Broken Hayward skimmer for our above-ground pool. Price was much lower that original equipment. New equipment has more features such as fitting for vacuming pool wich is also used when cleaning filter cartridge. Very helpful!! We are extreamly satisfied with our purchase.

      Good Purchase
      In the swim has been a life saver for me. I have ordered just about everything I need from them. I just ordered a new liner and what I like about the liners is that they fit perfectly every time, this is my second liner and I just love the new patterns. I ordered a new skimmer and it was a perfect fit also, and has everything you need, not like when you order from someone else and have to buy all the parts you need. My last investment of the summer is the above ground pool steps. I love the look ... read more and the ease of getting in and out of the pool but I think they are a little hard to handle, other then that I have been very satsifed with everything I have got from In the Swin......my one stop shopping place for pool supplies. Thank you In the Swim!

    More About Pool Skimmers & Replacement Skimmer Parts

    For replacement skimmer parts not found above, please visit our Skimmer Parts pages to search for skimmer parts by make and model. 

    One of the most vital pool accessories, pool wall skimmers serve to remove floating debris from your pool so that the water is clean and enticing. Pool skimmers are important for both above ground and inground pools and are installed near the surface of your pool to catch floating debris before it sinks to the bottom of your pool. The most common pool skimmer parts include skimmer baskets, skimmer cover, and the skimmer weir flap over which water flows.

    Whether you’re looking for above ground pool skimmers or an inground pool skimmer is very important as they are quite different. Above ground pool skimmers have a faceplate and gaskets to seal up to both sides of the pool wall. In-ground vinyl pool skimmers also have faceplates and gaskets, but like concrete pool skimmers, are designed to be encased in concrete to hold them firmly to the pool wall and pool deck.

    Pool skimmers for above ground pools are installed into the wall of your pool with stainless steel screws that secure the skimmer body to the outside of the pool wall. On the inside of the pool wall, skimmer gaskets are placed under the liner, and also on top of the pool liner, then secured tightly with the skimmer faceplate. The pool skimmer and the faceplate sandwich the pool wall and liner between them, using three skimmer gaskets to prevent leaking. 

    Skim Vac Plates: Vacuuming your pool into the skimmer basket is made possible with the use of skimmer vacuum plates. These skimmer accessory items seal up around the skimmer basket, to trap vacuumed debris in the larger and easier to empty skimmer basket, keeping your pump basket clean. 

    Skimmer Weirs: One of the most important skimmer parts, aside from the skimmer basket, is the skimmer weir. Foam filled weir doors speed-up water velocity into the skimmer for more effective skimming, and when the pump shuts off, skimmer weirs stand-up straight to keep debris trapped inside the skimmer.

    Skimmer Equalizers: For 'combo skimmers', those that have the main drain pipe plumbed into the bottom of the skimmer, usually into the hole on the pool side, with the rear hole carrying water to the pump. Skimmer equalizers (aka Skimmer Floats) and Trimmer Flaps, are used to balance water flow between the main drain and skimmer. 

    Skimmer Accessories: We stock many aftermarket products to improve pool skimmer action, such as the Skim-It skimmer arm, or the Skim Bag skimmer filter bags. We also have devices to allow skimmer suction to continue even when the basket is jammed full of leaves, or to balance flow among multiple skimmers. 

    Leaking Skimmer? Because pool skimmers are usually constructed of plastic, inground pool owners may notice leaking pool skimmers. Concrete pool skimmers may separate from the concrete pool wall slightly, and can be repaired with EZ-Patch 1 plaster mix or epoxy pool putty. Pool Putty also makes a great repair for cracks found on the skimmer body. For vinyl pools, leaking skimmers are usually fixed by replacing the faceplate and gaskets. Above ground pool skimmers have 3 wall gaskets, two on the pool side - above and below the liner, and one on the outside of the pool wall. 

    In The Swim offers a complete selection of Hayward pool skimmers for both in-ground and above ground pools. We also carry popular above ground skimmers by Swimline, Hydrotools skimmers for fast skimmer replacements. For soft-sided pools, our Replacement Through-Wall Skimmer can be installed thru-wall on heavy gauge Frame-Set pools, and for Easy-Set pool types, see the Intex Skimmer Wall Mounted Surface Skimmer.
