was not overly excited about purchasing this product as it was less than $20 thought,"probably junk". I received the product in less than a week using ship to store and it took less than 5 minutes to assemble and install, a minute or 2 to understand the concept of how it works and I have the cleanest surface my above ground pool has ever had. It sits right on the vinyl liner so a stiff side pool is not necessary. The only problem is that we have bee's nearby and the poor bugger's drown and end up in the skimmer and when it fills it sinks because they plug the screen. I have to empty it. But it is supposed to do that right? It skim's the pool great. Very satisfied, must have been a pool guy that created it.
About This Item
Benefit from the Heritage Over-the-Wall Skimmer that provides an easy way to clean your pool and keep it stain free. The Skimmer constricts the water through the strainer under the whirlpool action and helps you catch floating leaves and debris in aboveground pools before they make stains on the pool walls. The Above Ground Pool Skimmer segregates the large matter and collects it through a basket holding on to the strainer. The Basket can be separated out from the Swimming Pool Skimmer for periodical removal of the segregated matter to avoid accumulation.Over-the-Wall Skimmer includes:

Good for the price.
Good option for those who have a small pool. Only complaint is that the top does come off from the bottom piece when the kids get to wild and there are lots of waves. Also ours was missing 2 pieces a metal bracket (the twisted one) and the piece to connect to the pool for the hose to go in. My husband made the twisted bracket and a friend had an extra twist on piece. Really thinking about returning it so we can get all the pieces. But as for it skimming it works very well at getting the bugs and leaves off the top of the water.
Can't use it! The bolts & nuts that came with them doesn't even go together, had to guy buy some (the employee said looks like one piece is American & the other piece is from somewhere else, not even the correct thread! You would think that would have been checked before sending it out! But nothing is piecing together to make it work! Then there is no hose (in the picture shows a hose, so figured it came with it), now I am supposed to go buy a hose too? Even if I bought a hose, the white part that is suppose to stay at the top with the strainer piece that goes in it, keeps popping off of the blue piece, which is suppose to connect to a hose, then to the plug/adapter...waste of money! Can't upload the images, says it's taking to long, want to return it!
didn't fit wasn't good quality
did not fit correctly on pool plus it was so poorly made that even if it would have fit it would have been a piece of junk do not buy this not worth your time
This did not work!
this fell apart as soon as we put it in the pool, I returned it to Wal-Mart.
Does not work
It was constructed wrong does not work for skimming water is pulled from under skimmer not top
It's a piece of junk!
First of all, the box it came in was way bigger than it needed to be and none of the pieces were wrapped in any kind of packaging so the pieces were chipped and beat up looking from banging around inside the box during shipping. Also, it does not come with an instruction sheet. The only hint they give you on how to assemble it is a small diagram sticker on the outside of the box. Plus, it doesn't come with the piece of hose needed to connect the bottom of the skimmer to the filter's inlet port on your pool wall. Another problem I ran into was with the wing nuts that came with it. The threads inside them weren't the same size as the threads on the screws so it was impossible to screw the wing nuts onto the screws to connect the pieces together. I had to take the screws to a hardware store to find wing nuts that would screw onto them before I could assemble anything. And most importantly, the extension piece that comes with it to hang over the pool wall and connect to the skimmer wasn't long enough to get to the water level in my pool and because of that this skimmer would not work with my pool so I returned it. The overall design is terrible! I would have given it 0 stars, but I couldn't submit my review without giving it at least 1 star. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS SKIMMER!
Did not work for me
Did not work.
This skimmer is awful. It doesn't work!!! I did use the parts to make my old skimmer work, I guess we'll see how that goes. Big waste of money, my husband could have made it a lot better.
