    Skimmers & Accessories

    1. 9 years ago
      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.

      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.

      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 ... read more 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.

      This pole was expensive but well worth the money. Works better than the 2 section poles that we had before. Plus they are made in the USA.

      Seems to be commercial grade
      This pole replaces a 40+ year old pole The only thing I have a concern is why In the swim charges the handling fee In this time of free shipping and other things makes no sense

      Best Pole Ever
      I have a pool route (50 pools). I have two of these poles. I neeed a pole that wouldn't bend and break. The pole is expensive but you get what you pay for. Well worth the money.

      Use with caution
      These work great to keep debris out of hair pot. We have a large fir tree over our pool and get lots of needles in the pool. We also get pitch in the water. The sock can get clogged very easily. If that happens the suction will destroy the skimmer basket. We only use the sock right after we remove the solar blanket to catch the needles and then remove it. Never leave it in place for more than a couple hours. It still is worth the effort.

      Skimer Sock
      This is great and keeps the larger debris from entering you filter pump. It however does not get rid of finer particles of dirt and scum that will be caught by your filter. Do not think you can put this on your skimmer and keep your filter in your pump clean. It is really more helpful in catching the larger depris that is smaller than what the normal skimmer can catch like ants and smaller bug and leaf parts that could go through the strainer basket.

      Used these last season on the skimmer and wished I would have discovered them sooner!! Not only do they make cleaning out the filter quick and easy but it filters a lot of fine particles before the pool filter has a chance to which means less filter cleanings. You can wash them out and reuse but I just replace them every day, which I know makes more waste but it traps a lot of dirt so it's sometimes frustrating to clean. Make sure to check it daily because it WILL get dirty. I recommend these ... read more for everyone, especially if you want to save time and effort maintaining your pool. I absolutely LOVE them and don't want to operate my pool without them!!!!!

      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.

      Frog log critter escape ramp does the job!
      I bought this a month ago. One time I forgot to put it in the pool at night & I found 2 drowned critters the next morning. Previous to buying it, I was scooping dead frogs out of my pool nearly every day. It seems like it's working!

      Always quick and good quality
      Intheswim has never let me down. From the time I first found the cheapest pump price on eBay, I haven't been disappointed. Good quality and great price on everything I've purchased. Thanks!

      Surprisingly Effective / Easy to maintain
      We have a very old pool in-ground pool, which was not built with in-wall skimmer. In dire of need of work-around, I found the skim-a-round. I was skeptical at first, but the Skim-A-Round is actually very effective at keeping the surface of the pool free and clear of debris. I would definitely recommend this product. One item of note: With a high volume pump (1 HP+) this can not be your only inlet source. (The directions do note this) At high flow rate, the in-rushing water actual causes the ... read more return line to torque a bit, which in turn causes the skim-a-round to tip over.

      So awesome!
      We bought 2 versions and both work amazing. THE vacuum version moves around the whole pool eating everything that floats. The all-in-one made a HUGE improvement to our built in skimmer in seconds! It now pulls the floating stuff from at least double the distance, the basket is a no brainer.

      3 For 3!
      I have 3 skim-a-round items, the All In One, The Original & the 360 brush, and they are all great, must have products for pool owners. The basket is such a simple design, that makes a noticeable difference immediately, and at such a reasonable price. The original is great too because it catches things from the middle of the pool. The 360 brush is something I thought of years ago and I'm very glad I found it.. It's perfect for cleaning the pool tile and corners.

      Leveling Widemouth Above Ground Skimmer Share you
      we love this, it works great and keeps the pool a lot cleaner
    2. 3 years ago
      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.

      A2020 Deluxe Pole
      I had this pole for a few years now and it still looks new. It stays fairly straight fully extended and with a skimmer full of wet leaves. The only negative is it takes a good amount of torque to twist/untwist the cam to keep the pole at the desired length, so don't expect to change it while vacuuming the pool bottom.
    2. 8 months ago
      Everything arrived as expected and everything works great, pole is sturdy and larger pool brush makes quick work of the pool now. I had and still have a smaller one that i use on the walls of the pool, but the larger one i use on the pool floor and it takes no time with it. Good products and priced very good. Thanks In The Swim.....
