      Hayward above ground pool skimmer
      This Hauward Pool Skimmer saved us from having to take our 18foot by 48 inch Summer Escapes above ground pool down and replacing it. The pool is 6 years old and last year 5he skimmer on it developed a crack in it. I saw this skimmer, read some of the reviews and decided to give it a try. It did not fit exactly but my husband was able to adjust it and adjust the hole a little and made it work. It has lasted this summer and I expect it will last longer than we expected at first. We are very ... read more pleased with this product.

      Perfect Replacement Skimmer
      I bought this a few weeks back to replace the cracked skimmer on my 18x48 Summer Escapes pool. The top part of the skimmer opening on the pool had to be trimmed for the gasket to fit but it was no big deal.

      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

      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.

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

      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

      Top-Notch Product!
      This item really works great, believe the "hype" 'cause it's all true. In The Swim is a great supplier, very professional.

      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.

      Absolutely Amazing
      I purchased these Venturi return fittings in the beginning of the season and i have honestly never seen anything like it. They work exactly as described in the videos, anyone who claims they don't work clearly don't have the proper amount of flow from their filter. This is one of the best purchases i have ever made for my in-ground pool.

      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!

      Excellent Service, Great Prices
      I bought these replacement parts this summer from In The Swim after searching for them at retail. ITS had the parts readily available--I wish I'd searched the ITS website first instead of wasting time driving around looking for the parts.

      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.

      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.

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

      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.

      very good purchase

      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.

    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.
