      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.

      perfect addition to our skimmer basket
      Just what we needed to catch the pollen and fine debris that gets into the pool. Saves on emptying the pump basket too

      Heavy duty basket
      Heavier plastic than other brands I have bought (that's a good thing). The handle attaches with 4 screws (be careful when opening the bag, they are very easy to overlook-they should be taped to the basket or the like). The handle is strong and connection seems plenty strong enough. I took one star because the handle is in the way of scooping out the floating debris, but was expected & how can that be helped, anyway? It fit in my Pentair skimmer just fine and cheaper than the tower type I have ... read more been buying locally and only slightly more than their cheapest ones with the rope handles (even with S&H). Glad I tried it.

      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!

      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

      Gets the small stuff
      Great product for eliminating the frustration of seeing the small stuff pass right through the mesh on a typical leaf screen!

      So So Improvement
      I had higher hopes for this item. It does indeed trap the small stuff (in my case, gnats), but it's necessary to push it through the water very slowly as the mesh is so tight that it pushes the water and whatever debris you're trying to catch in front of and eventually off to the sides.

      lifesaver for someone with not alot of time
      we 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 ... read more skimmer !!!! Everyone needs this product for there pool. EVERYONE, PURCHASE THIS, AND YOU W/B VERY HAPPY....

      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 ... read more 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.

      Simple & Effective
      This is one of those "Why didn't I think of that!" products. A very simple idea that works very well. You just attach it to your skimmer (no screws) and it sticks out into your pool directing the water & debris into your skimmer. All the stuff you see float right past your skimmer now actually goes INTO your skimmer on the first go around. You do have to remove it before you swim obviously, but it just pops right off. Really not a big deal at all.

      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

      Skimmer is the Best
      It is working Great, Wish there could be one on the other side also that would help 100% also. That is on a 26' pool.

      Well worth buying
      This is the best item I have ordered for a pool. Cuts way down on cleanings, and cuts down on a large amount of bugs and other things that normally would end up on the bottom of the pool. If it floats on top of the water. The surface skimmer will pull it in and keep your pool looking more professional.

      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.

      Save All The Critters
      In Arizona we were having a big problem with frogs. With the hot temperatures and Frogs living in our grass areas around our pool. We would find frogs trying to get out of the pool. Best thing we did is install 3 Frog Log Critter Escape Ramp around the pool. It solved our problem!

      Love it! What a relief not dreading the walk out to the pool first thing in the morning because I didn’t know what I would find in there that I would have to try to save or worse, find too late. I have not found anything dead since I’ve gotten the ramp and gave seen a few frogs using the ramp to get out of the pool. In the past I’ve gotten frogs, squirrels, chipmunks, and baby rabbits out. Thank you for finally inventing something so small that takes care of such a big problem.
