    Wall Skimmers & Parts

      Nice Fit!
      This has been in place for about 3 weeks now. So far there has been no water getting through and the fit is nice and tight. I didn't give it an excellent star rating only because it hasn't been in use very long. Hopefully it will last the season,Seems like it will ,the quality is very good. It was great to not have to worry about lowering the water level, so easy and convenient!!

      skimmer plug
      I purchased one but I think I may have the wrong size. Water still comes in around it. I think I needed the one that is a little larger in fractions of an inch. Other purchased item were good

      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.

      Agree with "great pre-filter" description
      I was so happy in the different this lightweight mesh bag with a sturdy rim and handle. I bought a second one so I will have a backup in case I even need it. Catches everything (bugs and pine needles mostly) yet it is so easy to turn over, dump out, put it back in my skimmer basket without even needing to wash it even with perpetual use. The frequency of changing out the cartridges in my filter went way down since using this simply-designed-yet handy tool.

      does excel what it was designed to do, Wow
      I have used this product all year and I will be without one. I didn't know there were so many kinds of bugs in my pool but skim bag gets them all !!!

      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!

      Makes clean up so much easier!
      My daughters and I really really dislike removing dead bugs and hair from the skimmer filter so earlier this year I invested a few times in packages of these filter savers, because they were on sale. We love them! Our two dogs think our pool is their private playground and these filter savers really helped me deal with their hair loss without my losing my mind. I really enjoy that I could choose to dispose of the filter or rinse and reuse at these prices. I have even used them on the pump ... read more filter basket to aid in pool cleaning cleanup so that I would not have to vaccuum to waste due to leaves and bug carcasses. I am already stocking up for next summer!

      Can't Live Without
      My pool maintenance has been cut by at least 90%. I love this product and wish I had discovered them when I first got my pool. This saves you from cleaning your filter so often, I recently learned that you can vacuum with your hose in your skimmer with the filter saver on and capture all the debri that would have gone into your filter. My pool is cleaner, and clearer, it traps hair, sand, insects, collects oil residue from sunscreens etc. If this product ever became unavailable, I would have to ... read more find a way to make my own!!

      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.

      Love it!
      This replaced an above ground pool with hard sides. Most difficult thing was leveling the ground when we changed location. Grandchildren love it too!

      Hayward above ground pool skimmer
      This Hauward Pool Skimmer saved us from having to take our 18foot by 48 inch Summer Escapes above ground pool down and replacing it. The pool is 6 years old and last year 5he skimmer on it developed a crack in it. I saw this skimmer, read some of the reviews and decided to give it a try. It did not fit exactly but my husband was able to adjust it and adjust the hole a little and made it work. It has lasted this summer and I expect it will last longer than we expected at first. We are very ... read more pleased with this product.

      Perfect Replacement Skimmer
      I bought this a few weeks back to replace the cracked skimmer on my 18x48 Summer Escapes pool. The top part of the skimmer opening on the pool had to be trimmed for the gasket to fit but it was no big deal.

      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.

      Best way to get the critters out!!!
      Love being able to let the frogs, and other little critter escape by the practical design!

    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.
