      Awesome!
      Put this in my intex ultra frame in less than 10 minutes and works great. As always shipping Uber fast! Traps all the tree pieces and a great addition to vacuum the pool, it comes with all you need. You supply the hose and vacuum and get to work.

      New Skimmer
      We are in the process of completely redoing our pool, installing a new liner adding foam around pool walls and installing a new skimmer. Very pleased with the skimmer and was shipped to us very fast.

      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.

      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.

      Skims great, fastens so-so
      We have the intex skimmer for our intex 18' pool. The frame is not entirely round but has more of a flattened top rail. The first week the skimmer stayed in place perfectly. After that it would pop off-which is a big concern bc I don't want my pump to burn up. So after trial n error we zip-tied the skimmer in place for additional support. It works great!!

      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.

      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!

      Catches everything!
      We have used these socks on our skimmer basket for 2 years now and we love it. Catches all the fine particles so we don't have to replace the DE in our filter as often. We put a small rock in it to keep the sock from floating. You get several in a bag and the price is right.

      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.)

      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.

      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!

      Above ground skimmer
      The skimmer was a perfect replacement for the old one that cracked. It came with all the necessary parts, including the gaskets and directional pool return port.

    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.
