    Skimmer Baskets

      check the size
      Our skimmer basket broke and we need a new one. I thought the size on the website said 6 3/8 in round. Here is was 8 3/8 in round. Too big. Make sure you look carefully at the size. They are very hard to read online, I would suggest calling for assistance.

      Great so far!
      Yay! It fit! This is a nice, sturdy basket. I hadn't been able to find any at the pool/hardware stores that fit properly. All were a little small and pretty thin and flimsy. Not this one....its a winner!

      I had been looking for some time for a replacement skimmer basket for our above ground pool that worked. The biggest frustration of the whole ordeal was going back to our original supplier for the part and never getting the exact item. Finally, I have found it and will be ordering another as back up!

      Skim IT
      This item works well in conjunction with my Pool Skim. PoolHusband mentioned in his review that he purchased this device in place of the Pool Skim as it was cheaper and performs the same function. That is not true. The Pool Skim skims the pool and pulls all the leaves and junk into a separate mini-toilet bowl with a separate filter bag. This saves wear and tear on your pump and filter media. The Skim IT just guides the debris into your existing skimmer further contaminating the skimmer basket, ... read more pump and filter media.

      Outstanding product
      The Skim-it installs easy and can be removed simply by lifting it up off the mount. The mount stays in the skimmer inlet. The bugs and leaves that usually pass by will get caught in the skimmer. The arm reaches out approximately two feet. It is yellow in color which stand out and this is a good thing. The mount is adjustable and should fit any skimmer. I have a 20x40 in-ground pool with a side skimmer. There is also a water line marker on the skim-it so you know if the water level is too low.

      Best Product I've Bought!
      This is by far the best item I have bought for my pool yet! We have several tall trees that provide our pool with many uwanted leaves for the 1st month we open pool, during storms, and starting a month or so before it's time to close our pool that would fall to the bottom of the pool and some just float all over. Nothing we have purchased in the past from other sources seemed to do much good. We were skeptical about something that was so simple looking as this would be any better. However, we ... read more were greatly surprised & very pleased with it's performance. I would say that 98% of all leaves that find their way into our pool are quickly directed to the skimmer nowwhich saves us so much time trying to get out with a net & vacuum. I would HIGHLY recommend this item to any pool owner that has the same issues we had with so many nearby trees!

      Great product. Love it.
      It is so nice to not have to get your hand wet getting the basket out and even nicer to drop the contents directly into a garbage can.

      Love the handle
      This handle is great when you have occasional visitors in your skimmer

      surface skimmer
      We had the one that came with pool 6 years ago. worked great until it just became brittle from 6 years of constant use. I have been trying to replace it and for 2 years it has not been available. Whats the deal ? What are my options. Terribly disappointed at Intex.

      Exactly what I needed
      The skimmer that came with my intex pool had to be replaced, so I usually check with in the swim when Im shopping for pool parts, exactly what I was looking for

      works great
      This Weir (5-9/16"L x 4-5/8"H) fits my above ground perfectly and installs easily.

      the tabs to lock into the skimmer do not hold up very well when you vacuum daily there is a lot of flexing I have had ones with sliding tabs that worked better I guess for the price they are ok but when you add in the handling they are quite expensive for what they are

      Exactly what we needed
      It was not the same color but it didn't really matter. It fit perfect.

      Like new
      When I bought my pool in 2003 this was the skimmer basket that was used and over the years it wore out, which was completely acceptable, what was not is that I could not find a local company that had a replacement, greater Phoenix, Arizona area. So search online and found your site, intheswim and you had exactly what I was looking for, this item. So bought 2 so would not have to go through the hassle of finding a replacement again. Of course now I know the name also, Hayward, SP1080 Skimmer. ... read more I book marked this site and will always search here first for any other pool or spa items I need, thanks.
