    Wall Skimmers & Parts

    1. 1 decade ago
      Great Product
      We just love these filter savers. They really work well and last a long time. They keep the bugs, leafs, hair, etc. out of the pool controls. All I have to do is rinse them out with the hose each day, put them back on, and they keep on working. Best inexpensive product to save the life of our pool filters that we have found. We will keep on using these filter savers as long as we have our pool. Thanks for a really great product!!

      Makes clean up so much easier!
      My daughters and I really really dislike removing dead bugs and hair from the skimmer filter so earlier this year I invested a few times in packages of these filter savers, because they were on sale. We love them! Our two dogs think our pool is their private playground and these filter savers really helped me deal with their hair loss without my losing my mind. I really enjoy that I could choose to dispose of the filter or rinse and reuse at these prices. I have even used them on the pump ... read more filter basket to aid in pool cleaning cleanup so that I would not have to vaccuum to waste due to leaves and bug carcasses. I am already stocking up for next summer!

      Fantastic dog fur filter
      I bought this filter to use in my mother-in-laws pool. We take our three labrador retrievers to swim and she was worried about fur getting to the pool filter. Since we have started using the skimmer pool filters no fur has reached the main filter. The fur collects in the filter skimmer baskets and you just rinse it with a house. Fantastic product!

      not bad but
      It works great but you need to use a tie wrap on the hose to keep te skimmer from coming out of the water. Also how do you hook up the acute with this skimmer?

      Intex surface skimmer
      This is my 2nd Intex skimmer. I had my 1st one for several years and it simply wore out. It worked so well that I replaced it with the same one I had.

      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

      Best Skimmer
      Bought this skimmer in replacement of my Broken Hayward skimmer for our above-ground pool. Price was much lower that original equipment. New equipment has more features such as fitting for vacuming pool wich is also used when cleaning filter cartridge. Very helpful!! We are extreamly satisfied with our purchase.

      INEXPENSIVE UPGRADE
      it is a great add on to a cheaper above ground pool so you don't have a skimmer hanging inside the pool.

      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.

      Perfect solution to a common circulation problem!
      This product does exactly what the video shows and what the company claims. The entire nature of how my 55000 gallon pool circulates has changed. The venturi effect causes a much larger volume of water to be "pushed" as it works. Aiming them at the bottom can even cause the water in the pool to roll, evening out temperatures at all depths. An added bonus is that it can keep debris stirred up on the bottom to be picked up by the skimmers and drain, Well worth the low price.

      Works Great
      Perfect for an intex above ground 18' Round Pool, Set it up just below the sealed seam on top, and it works perfect. No more stuff floating on the pool surface. Just Love It.

      skimmer plug
      I purchased one but I think I may have the wrong size. Water still comes in around it. I think I needed the one that is a little larger in fractions of an inch. Other purchased item were good

    More About Pool Skimmers & Replacement Skimmer Parts

    For replacement skimmer parts not found above, please visit our Skimmer Parts pages to search for skimmer parts by make and model. 

    One of the most vital pool accessories, pool wall skimmers serve to remove floating debris from your pool so that the water is clean and enticing. Pool skimmers are important for both above ground and inground pools and are installed near the surface of your pool to catch floating debris before it sinks to the bottom of your pool. The most common pool skimmer parts include skimmer baskets, skimmer cover, and the skimmer weir flap over which water flows.

    Whether you’re looking for above ground pool skimmers or an inground pool skimmer is very important as they are quite different. Above ground pool skimmers have a faceplate and gaskets to seal up to both sides of the pool wall. In-ground vinyl pool skimmers also have faceplates and gaskets, but like concrete pool skimmers, are designed to be encased in concrete to hold them firmly to the pool wall and pool deck.

    Pool skimmers for above ground pools are installed into the wall of your pool with stainless steel screws that secure the skimmer body to the outside of the pool wall. On the inside of the pool wall, skimmer gaskets are placed under the liner, and also on top of the pool liner, then secured tightly with the skimmer faceplate. The pool skimmer and the faceplate sandwich the pool wall and liner between them, using three skimmer gaskets to prevent leaking. 

    Skim Vac Plates: Vacuuming your pool into the skimmer basket is made possible with the use of skimmer vacuum plates. These skimmer accessory items seal up around the skimmer basket, to trap vacuumed debris in the larger and easier to empty skimmer basket, keeping your pump basket clean. 

    Skimmer Weirs: One of the most important skimmer parts, aside from the skimmer basket, is the skimmer weir. Foam filled weir doors speed-up water velocity into the skimmer for more effective skimming, and when the pump shuts off, skimmer weirs stand-up straight to keep debris trapped inside the skimmer.

    Skimmer Equalizers: For 'combo skimmers', those that have the main drain pipe plumbed into the bottom of the skimmer, usually into the hole on the pool side, with the rear hole carrying water to the pump. Skimmer equalizers (aka Skimmer Floats) and Trimmer Flaps, are used to balance water flow between the main drain and skimmer. 

    Skimmer Accessories: We stock many aftermarket products to improve pool skimmer action, such as the Skim-It skimmer arm, or the Skim Bag skimmer filter bags. We also have devices to allow skimmer suction to continue even when the basket is jammed full of leaves, or to balance flow among multiple skimmers. 

    Leaking Skimmer? Because pool skimmers are usually constructed of plastic, inground pool owners may notice leaking pool skimmers. Concrete pool skimmers may separate from the concrete pool wall slightly, and can be repaired with EZ-Patch 1 plaster mix or epoxy pool putty. Pool Putty also makes a great repair for cracks found on the skimmer body. For vinyl pools, leaking skimmers are usually fixed by replacing the faceplate and gaskets. Above ground pool skimmers have 3 wall gaskets, two on the pool side - above and below the liner, and one on the outside of the pool wall. 

    In The Swim offers a complete selection of Hayward pool skimmers for both in-ground and above ground pools. We also carry popular above ground skimmers by Swimline, Hydrotools skimmers for fast skimmer replacements. For soft-sided pools, our Replacement Through-Wall Skimmer can be installed thru-wall on heavy gauge Frame-Set pools, and for Easy-Set pool types, see the Intex Skimmer Wall Mounted Surface Skimmer.
