Great Skimmer for Intex Ultraset Pool
We purchased this for our above ground pool. Had to do some minor modifications as it is actually for a steel sided pool. We had to split the gasket so it was on each side of the pool liner. We watched a couple YouTube videos on doing it and was pretty easy to do. Works great catches a lot of stuff in the basket helping it not land on the floor of our pool. If you are trying to decide between this one and the smaller square one, go with this since it is rectangular. You have to keep your water level about half way up on the skimmer and if you use the square one your water level will be lower.

Poorly Manufactured
Not happy with this product at all. The eye connection was defective and leaked so we put the old one back on, The skimmer basket does not stay down and the flap door sticks causing the water not to flow into the skimmer causing my pump to run dry so we had to remove the flap door.

Only improvement would be better instructions

Verified purchase

This is awesome! Very good skimmer! The only thing I'd change is to make the instructions more cleare. Was not obvious where the liner went in relation to the gasket. I installed 2 times, then got it right on the 3rd time. Nonetheless, it works like a charm! Love it. I replaced the floating skimmer of my intex pool with this. Also installed the water return as well. Both are much improvements over the original equipment. My floating skimmer would get stuck and not lower - this would cause the pump to pull in air and stop working (although it kept running). Very happy with this product!

Great Item

Verified purchase

I have a 32x16x52 Intex pool and really needed a good skimmer. This worked great. I would recommend that you install this when the pool is full and the liner is stretched. The butterfly gasket included worked best for me when I separated it in to two parts and used silicone. I highly recommend that you visit Trouble Free Pools forum for help if you need it.

Great skimmer

Must have for soft sided pools, not hard to install but think it through before you cut, a hobby knife works great, (use a new blade) well worth the money for a cleaner pool

Great Replacement Skimmer

Bought this to replace the skimmer on our above ground pool which was a medium to high end pool. This skimmer far exceeds the quality of the skimmer that came with our pool. It came with a skimmer basket with a bail handle (makes it very easy to remove w/o turning your pump off), vacuum attachment for attaching the vacuum hose to (this one has a concave shape that fits down over the skimmer basket for a tight fit without removing the basket), a "pot" support leg that supports the pot against the side of the pool to prevent stress on the rest of the assembly. Also included was all the hardware and gaskets to do a complete replacement. Gasket was a bit tight to get fitted properly and took two sets of hands to get it right. Very high quality design/manufacturing and half the price of any others I was able to find on the internet or locally. Extremely pleased with the skimmer and would highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a replacement for their above ground pool.

Excellent value, but...

This entire setup is on par with what you can get at the pool stores but at a fraction of the cost. The one and only complaint I have is the skimmer basket is of an odd size and is hard to find a replacement for. Otherwise it's the standard skimmer catch with all the mounting hardware and silicone sleeve gasket.

great product

Verified purchase

The skimmer works great. The only thing that needs improvement is the basket does not snap into the housing. Ones that i have used in the past lock into the housing to prevent them from dislodging when the pump is turned off. i fixed this one by folding a small piece of aluminum over the lip of the basket to take up the gap between the housing. This made it fit tightly and no more dislodging when the filter was turned off.

Skimmer and Silicon

Verified purchase

No instructions for installation. The supplied gaskets do not fit well with the assembly causing many leaks. You need several tubes of silicon to seal inside and out around the wide mouth, at the assembly joints, and all screw heads. Once assembled and you have exhausted the silicon tubes to stop all the leaks, you still may need some under water sealant to close any remaining leaks. When operating it seems to work well to collect surface debris so you don't have to vacuum them off the bottom later.

Built like a tank!!

This skimmer is rock-solid. Like mentioned in the other reviews, it is made with thick durable plastic, unlike the flimsy ones sold by other pool supply companies at double the price. The support brace is also a great feature since the weight of a skimmer tends to pull the pool wall down, causing cracks, leaks, etc. The hose connections are also nice and well thought out. Most hose connections are tapered while the ones on this unit are straight with little ridges to hold the hoses on. Even with hose clamps, hoses still slide off tapered connections. My only issue with this skimmer is that the basket keeps floating up when the pump turns off but I resolved that issue by placing a small rock in the basket. Overall, you won't find a more durable skimmer for such a great price. I'm thinking of buying another one but hopefully, I won't need it for several years to come.

OK but could be better

Verified purchase

I like the product but was not impressed with the instructions that did come with it and they were vague. There weren't any instructions on how to attach it to your pump and filter. I had to watch you tube videos to get this done. The face place and back side were extremely hard to screw together.

1. yes it can I did put silicone all around it

2. On an above ground vinyl liner pool, it should be no problem. I have one that I am going to put it on (24 x52). I would find a good location (height) and mount it in the middle between the frame poles. Once, you mount it, then cut out the middle. Make sure that all of the hoses are the same size.

3. Yes it works very well. Watch some of the YouTube videos online about installing it. You have to split the gasket so it is on each side of the liner. We didn't even have to use silicone. Install it as high as you can as your water level will only be able to go half way up the skimmer. This rectangular skimmer is a better option than the smaller square one for that reason, your water level will be a couple inches higher because of the shape

1. I would say no. I believe this is meant to be a replacement part for above ground pools that originally would have included the same wide mouth skimmer type.

3. I second the answer, YES! Even above ground "Intex" style pools can use this. And let me say, life is SOOOOO much easier when you have it instead of the old hang-over-the-side style which are junk.
