      Love it!!
      I bought two of these last year. I put one on each side of our pool, saved many frogs. I watched frogs jump on and climb out, great feeling saving them. I really do not want to own a pool without these, only problem, I need two more this year because the material they are made of does not last. The bean bag has ripped due to being in the sun so much and the plastic has torn and faded. Wish these were made of more durable material but love them.

      No more dead creatures!
      Since the day I installed this product I have not had a single animal perish in my pool! This makes me so very happy!

      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.

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

      Works Great
      This thing works very well. Easy to attach to skimmer with no tools needed. Really helps collect more debris in skimmer that would normally just float by. I have my return jet valves position to create a current around the pool. This things traps items out 2 ft that would never be caught by the skimmer. When pool is in use simply lift off holder or lay flat against the pool wall. Highly recommend.

      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!

      Saves skimming time!
      Bought this last year and we love it! It directs more debris into the pool skimmer saving us a lot of time using the pole skimmer!

      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.

      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.

      Size was right
      The catalog listing did not show size, but when I checked by phone I found that it was the size I needed. It does a great job so far.

      Good Purchase
      In the swim has been a life saver for me. I have ordered just about everything I need from them. I just ordered a new liner and what I like about the liners is that they fit perfectly every time, this is my second liner and I just love the new patterns. I ordered a new skimmer and it was a perfect fit also, and has everything you need, not like when you order from someone else and have to buy all the parts you need. My last investment of the summer is the above ground pool steps. I love the look ... read more and the ease of getting in and out of the pool but I think they are a little hard to handle, other then that I have been very satsifed with everything I have got from In the Swin......my one stop shopping place for pool supplies. Thank you In the Swim!

      Perfect fit
      We have a 20-year old above ground pool that has had a leaking skimmer for 2 years and we could not find a suitable replacement. We took a chance on this, and what a great buy - it fit exactly, all the holes for attachment lined up and installation was a breeze. The basket in the skimmer has no handle (which usually breaks off anyway) but has a lip on the inner edge for easy removal, and it simply twists and locks into place. The lid also twists and locks into place, which is great. I would ... read more recommend this product highly if you have an old pool and need a new skimmer.

      Nice Design..
      This skimmer has a locking strainer and lid, so when you have a bunch of people in the pool and the water level goes up...the lid stays on and the strainer stays in ! If you have one that doesn't lock you know how annoying that is ...so replace it with this one and you will never have that problem again

      tabsbreak
      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
