      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. ..

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

      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.

      surface skimmer
      We had the one that came with pool 6 years ago. worked great until it just became brittle from 6 years of constant use. I have been trying to replace it and for 2 years it has not been available. Whats the deal ? What are my options. Terribly disappointed at Intex.

      Well worth buying
      This is the best item I have ordered for a pool. Cuts way down on cleanings, and cuts down on a large amount of bugs and other things that normally would end up on the bottom of the pool. If it floats on top of the water. The surface skimmer will pull it in and keep your pool looking more professional.

      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!!

      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!!!!!

      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.

      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.)

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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.

    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.
