Cut Pool Cleaning Time by 75%
One of In the Swim’s best-selling products, the Skim It skimmer arm drastically cuts down on pool cleaning time by directing debris into your pool’s skimmer. This revolutionary product connects to the skimmer between the weir door and the face plate and "guides" large and small debris into the skimmer, effectively increasing the skimmer's pull further out into the pool's center. Made of durable and chemical-resistant ABS plastic, the Skim-It skimmer arm is compatible with most pool skimmers and will last for years.
Economically priced and built to last, the Skim It skimmer arm is colored a bright yellow to prevent swimmers from running into it when they get near the skimmer area. The Skim-It is 28 inches long by 4 inches wide, can be installed in seconds and doesn’t have any metal parts that will rust or corrode.

It works!Our pool is under a leafy canopy so we have plenty of pool management tasks -- skimming being a key one. After spending an hour getting seasonal debris off the surface with the hand-pole skimmer, I thought I'd (finally) give this gadget a try. I also considered the (much more expensive) PoolSkim (item #A2195). I'm glad I tried this first. After a few days of use, I'm pleased with the results. Very little natural litter or bugs on the pool surface. To be sure, I think it needs a full season's trial, but I like the simplicity, ease of installation and low cost. BTW, when you're using the pool it is easily lifted off its axle so it's not in the way.

lifesaver for someone with not alot of timewe have a backyard with alot of trees, and we have a 24ft round pool, and for the last 8 years we have been going to the pool, and skimming the top of the water for bugs and leafs, etc.... for EVER, everyday..... Well NO MORE!!!!! Now we can go up, get in the pool, and ENJOY!!!! This was very easy to install, and very easy to take on and off when you are in the pool. I swear, the only thing floating on top, is the bugs that have just landed, and are alive, otherwise, everything else, is in the skimmer !!!! Everyone needs this product for there pool. EVERYONE, PURCHASE THIS, AND YOU W/B VERY HAPPY....

Skim-It / Love It!We have seen this for a couple of years and finally bought one which we got the other day. Wish we had gotten it a long time ago. This is so simple to use and it WORKS! Anyone that can't get it to work is because it doesn't fit, which it clearly states "fits most" but not all, or they aren't installing it correctly and need to adjust. If you can't get it to work then try sliding the part that goes inside the skimmer to fit up against the side so when you put on the arm and it swings, because it will some due to the current, that it can't go too far because the side of the skimmer is stopping it.

Wish it would have fit my skimmer.I gave this produce a moderate review, only because after receiving it, I determined that it would NOT fit my Hayward above ground pool skimmer. The description of the produce does state that it fits most skimmers, but since Hayward is a well know brand in the pool business, I didn't hesitate to order this. Unfortunately, I had to return it for refund. I gave it 3 starts because it seemed to be very well constructed & I was able to read the instructions thru the plastic bag, so I never had to open up the product. The Hayward skimmer that I have does not have enough of a recessed area to install the vertical pieces outside of the skimmer door.
