    Wall Skimmers & Parts

      Best Ever
      This is the BEST thing to have for your filter basket. With the pollen as high as it is now, it gathers ALL of it. If we didn't use this sock, most of the pollen would be back in our pool. It's amazing what all it collects. Tried using a nylon but it wasn't as fine mesh as this filter sock is. Would highly recommend this product to anyone with a pool. We run our pool year around with a sock on the filter basket. (Can't swim in winter tho.)

      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!!

      LOVE FILTER SAVERS!!!
      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!!!!!

      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.

      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

      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. ..

      Great product!
      Purchased this skimmer for our 22 foot above ground pool. It works great and keeps me from having to manually skim the pool all the time of bugs and debris. Wished I had known of this item last year when we set up the pool.

      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
    3. 5 years ago
      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?

      Through-wall skimmer
      Love the skimmer! Easy to install and comes with the necessary attachments for the pool vacuum, plus a 90 degree elbow which makes it easier to attach the hose. Much better than the skimmer it replaced. Thanks.

      Everything you need
      I was a little hesitant at the price compared to the other through-wall skimmers, however, this came with everything I needed and then some. I added this to an Intex Ultra Frame 16x48 pool easily. Comes with 2 gaskets, vacuum attachments, reducers, basket... everything needed for a new install. It is a bit off-white, but that doesn't bother me at all.

      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!

      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!

    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.
