    Skimmer Baskets

      Great product. Love it.
      It is so nice to not have to get your hand wet getting the basket out and even nicer to drop the contents directly into a garbage can.

      Love the handle
      This handle is great when you have occasional visitors in your skimmer

      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.

      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.

      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!!!!!

      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!

      Use with caution
      These work great to keep debris out of hair pot. We have a large fir tree over our pool and get lots of needles in the pool. We also get pitch in the water. The sock can get clogged very easily. If that happens the suction will destroy the skimmer basket. We only use the sock right after we remove the solar blanket to catch the needles and then remove it. Never leave it in place for more than a couple hours. It still is worth the effort.

      I had been looking for some time for a replacement skimmer basket for our above ground pool that worked. The biggest frustration of the whole ordeal was going back to our original supplier for the part and never getting the exact item. Finally, I have found it and will be ordering another as back up!

      Super fast delivery
      I needed a new skimmer basket and the price was great so I got 4. They arrived faster than expected. I am very happy with my purchase.

      Better than the original.
      This basket is just as efficient as the original was. Others just do not have the smaller screening holes this one does and too much large stuff gets to the pump basket.

      a useful purchase
      I ordered some extra parts because i thought i needed them and when the new skimmer box came all of the extra parts were included with it. The online description should be modified to describe which parts are included with the new skimmer box, so people don't order extra parts that are included.

      I do not like the basket that goes with this skimmer. It is smaller that the one it replaced, and it's difficult to put it just right or get out to clear of leaves. I would recommend spending the money and getting the name brand one.

      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.

      Skim IT
      This item works well in conjunction with my Pool Skim. PoolHusband mentioned in his review that he purchased this device in place of the Pool Skim as it was cheaper and performs the same function. That is not true. The Pool Skim skims the pool and pulls all the leaves and junk into a separate mini-toilet bowl with a separate filter bag. This saves wear and tear on your pump and filter media. The Skim IT just guides the debris into your existing skimmer further contaminating the skimmer basket, ... read more pump and filter media.

      Simple & Effective
      This is one of those "Why didn't I think of that!" products. A very simple idea that works very well. You just attach it to your skimmer (no screws) and it sticks out into your pool directing the water & debris into your skimmer. All the stuff you see float right past your skimmer now actually goes INTO your skimmer on the first go around. You do have to remove it before you swim obviously, but it just pops right off. Really not a big deal at all.

      lifesaver for someone with not alot of time
      we have a backyard with alot of trees, and we have a 24ft round pool, and for the last 8 years we have been going to the pool, and skimming the top of the water for bugs and leafs, etc.... for EVER, everyday..... Well NO MORE!!!!! Now we can go up, get in the pool, and ENJOY!!!! This was very easy to install, and very easy to take on and off when you are in the pool. I swear, the only thing floating on top, is the bugs that have just landed, and are alive, otherwise, everything else, is in the ... read more skimmer !!!! Everyone needs this product for there pool. EVERYONE, PURCHASE THIS, AND YOU W/B VERY HAPPY....

      Unbelievable HUGE Difference
      Ordered the Ultimate on a Monday and received it at home on Tuesday! Hooked it up within 10 minutes and it started traveling across the surface picking up every single dead bug. Within 4 hours the pool went from disgusting to crystal clear. Great experience. Must have if you own a pool vacuum!

      This thing works!
      My pool is about 30 years old and the skimmer was weak to say the least. This little contraption set up in about 5 minutes and takes up all the slack in getting leaves and other debris off the pool. The pool is under a big live oak tree which seems to shed something all year round. I am so glad I purchased the Skim-A-Around.

      Surprisingly Effective / Easy to maintain
      We have a very old pool in-ground pool, which was not built with in-wall skimmer. In dire of need of work-around, I found the skim-a-round. I was skeptical at first, but the Skim-A-Round is actually very effective at keeping the surface of the pool free and clear of debris. I would definitely recommend this product. One item of note: With a high volume pump (1 HP+) this can not be your only inlet source. (The directions do note this) At high flow rate, the in-rushing water actual causes the ... read more return line to torque a bit, which in turn causes the skim-a-round to tip over.
