    Wall Skimmers & Parts

    1. 2 years ago
      Surprisingly Effective / Easy to maintain
      We have a very old pool in-ground pool, which was not built with in-wall skimmer. In dire of need of work-around, I found the skim-a-round. I was skeptical at first, but the Skim-A-Round is actually very effective at keeping the surface of the pool free and clear of debris. I would definitely recommend this product. One item of note: With a high volume pump (1 HP+) this can not be your only inlet source. (The directions do note this) At high flow rate, the in-rushing water actual causes the ... read more return line to torque a bit, which in turn causes the skim-a-round to tip over.

      This thing works!
      My pool is about 30 years old and the skimmer was weak to say the least. This little contraption set up in about 5 minutes and takes up all the slack in getting leaves and other debris off the pool. The pool is under a big live oak tree which seems to shed something all year round. I am so glad I purchased the Skim-A-Around.

      Skimmer works great
      Excellent skimmer. Works as advertised. Only thing I don't like is it has it's own collection basket to keep debris out of pool filter basket. That is why I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5. It sounds like a good idea to have it's own debris basket but emptying skimmer basket is a pain. If you turn off the filter to remove the skimmer basket some debris can escape back into the pool. If you leave filter running while you take out the basket, the whole skimmer assembly will float up and start ... read more sucking air. I take a bucket to the edge of the pool. I use one hand to hold the skimmer in the water while I use the other hand to remove the basket and dump debris into the bucket. I would prefer the skimmer to not have it's own basket, but that's the way it is made. Otherwise it is a great skimmer. It does the job.

      The bag is great ad it catches lots of the smaller items that were getting into the filter unnecessarily.

      perfect addition to our skimmer basket
      Just what we needed to catch the pollen and fine debris that gets into the pool. Saves on emptying the pump basket too

      Great Pre-Filter
      Had a real problem with small particles from trees getting through skimmers into main filter increasing the number of times the main cartridge filter needed to be cleaned. So far these additions to my regular skimmer baskets are keeping out a lot of stuff that would end up in the main filter.

      Just what I was looking for!
      I've used these skimmer covers for a whole summer and they are great! Dead animals in the skimmer used to be a daily occurrence. I had NONE this year. Occasionally a frog that is too fat for the hole is sitting on the ramp, but no deaths.

      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.

      Good fit
      So far it's ok but I'm skeptical about the thickness of the material being able to hold up to the internal vacuum pressure.

    More About Pool Skimmers & Replacement Skimmer Parts

    One of the most vital pool accessories, pool skimmers serve to remove 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. Typically, pool skimmer parts include skimmer baskets, a lid or door (also known as a weir flap), and an open channel through which water flows. Whether you’re looking for above ground pool skimmers or an inground pool skimmers is very important as they are quite different. Above-ground pool skimmers have a faceplate and they are installed in the wall of the pool. Inground pool skimmers are set into the concrete of your pool making them stronger than above ground pool skimmers but also more difficult to replace.

    Pool skimmers for above ground pools are installed into the wall of your pool by setting the faceplate on the inner portion of the pool and the pool skimmer on the outside of the pool. This means the pool skimmer and the faceplate seal the pool wall and liner between them, utilizing a faceplate gasket to prevent leaking. Water is then pulled through pool skimmers which also forces debris through the skimmer where it gets collected by pool skimmer baskets. From here, it is the responsibility of the pool owner to empty the pool skimmer basket before debris blocks water from flowing through the pool wall skimmer.

    While above ground and inground pool wall skimmers essentially serve the same function, they are installed in different ways and they are more likely to leak. Because pool skimmer parts are usually constructed of plastic, inground pool owners may notice that their pool skimmers sometimes spring leaks. Concrete is quite heavy and plastic pool skimmers cannot always stand up to the pressure created by the heavy construction of inground pools. Regardless, pool skimmers are your pool’s first defense against dirty water and are extremely important for removing debris and maintaining the clarity of your water. Swimming pool skimmers are definitely a must have for both inground and above ground pools and should be purchased along with your new pool.
