MY ORIGINAL SKIMMER GOT DAMAGE. IT WOULD COST TOO MUCH TO REPAIR... THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO REPLACE IT.

This was a Christmas present. As my husband was putting it together he found 2 pieces missing, number 5 and number 9.\nHe was NOT happy, neither was I. You expect that each product will be checked and rechecked before it is end out to the customer.\nHuge hassle, now have to call company and hope for the best.

Our in ground pool is 25 years old. It has three suction outlets: the main drain, wall outlet for an auto pool cleaner and a standard in-wall skimmer. The in-wall skimmer has always been a marginal performer and we’ve always done a lot of manual netting of surface debris. The problem was exacerbated when we installed a variable speed pool pump because the suction pull through skimmer was somewhat reduced. Over the years we also had to be careful during dry periods to ensure the skimmer never got low enough to allow air into our system. Those problems are now solved. The skim-a-round floats around the center of our pool allowing greater coverage for skimming. It seems to have a much greater “pull” even running with the reduced rate of our variable speed pump. Our pool surface is dramatically cleaner than it has ever been. A dry October has reduced our pool level to where we would normally have to top it off, but that’s not an issue any more. There are no moving parts with the skimmer so it should last for years. As a con, since we have the original model, attached through our side wall skimmer inlet, its’ hose tends to become entangled with our auto pool cleaner hose. So we have to turn off the skimmer suction and remove the skim-a-round from the pool when we run a cleaning cycle. It’s also a bit pricey, especially for a few pieces of extruded plastic. But all-in-all, we are very happy and are patting ourselves on our backs for making a great purchase.

Works great. My only complaint is that the hoses are not long enough to reach the full length of my pool.

Works but you need some small modification to make it work 100%.

This works great! We had a skimmer leak and they wanted $2800 to replace it. I got this and it works fantastic!

We are super satisfied with the performance of this unit. No more spending swim time skimming leaves (we have many) instead of relaxing. The Skim-a-Round eliminates that hassle! Our only recommendation to prospective buyers is to be certain you buy the upgraded unit (not the basic) if you want to attach the unit to your existing bottom cleaner. We didn't and had to buy a conversion kit. Other than that, we couldn't be happier!!!
