    Skimmer Baskets

      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.

      Good replacement for OEM
      Bought this to replace cracked skimmer. Seems to be a little bit of an improvement in quality over original except the flapper pivot pin snapped off the 3 Rd time I removed it to clean pool. ..

      Excellent service and product
      Skimmer was a perfect fit and the installation was very easy. The plumbers tape was not expected, and I appreciate it being with the install kit very much.

      A must-have to collect bugs
      I needed to buy a replacement basket, as the old one had broken edges. I wish it had a better quality, harder plastic. The old one broke over time, from bumping the bugs out. It works tho and fits good, but the basket was $3 with free shipping but 3X the cost to handle it, $9!

      Leveling Widemouth Above Ground Skimmer Share you
      we love this, it works great and keeps the pool a lot cleaner

      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.

      Will it fit a 27 round pool
      I want to buy one but need to know what size I need.

      You Need To Get One!
      You will LOVE this product! It will clean up your pool water! I have an Intex above ground pool, that suffered from cloudy water. Tried chemicals, new filters, helped a little. Didn't like putting all those chemicals in the pool, figured there had to be a better way. The SLIME BAG is the better way! It does the job, easy to use, and REUSABLE. So if you have a Water Problem, Give the SLIME BAG a try! You won"t be sorry!

      You're nuts if you don't have two of these
      I bought one of these as a doubting thomas, but I had tried every other trick to get rid of sub-filter particles. This slimebag works, baby! It works so well, I'm getting another one so I can have one on both return lines. I would notice the back pressure from having the bag on one line would just blow the particles to the other jet. They would eventually get captured, but now in half the time. Not until you have to clean these things will you fully realize how well they work. Ick.

      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.

      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.

      Fits perfect !
      If you ever have to replace the flap.. this product will not let you down. Made very well, and not "cheap". Has held up for 2 yrs now with no problems. Definite buy if you need one.
    2. 6 months ago
      I ordered the weir flap and wasn’t 100 percent sure it would fit our pool. When it arrived, I installed in less than a minute and it was a perfect fit!

      a good product
      This is a good replacement product. Rigid plastic holds unit tight in place. My only complaint is that the foam backing is not glued to the plastic body and the suction of the pump pulls it out of the tabs keeping it in place and I find the foam pad floating in the skimmer rendering the product useless.
