I received this to review for my YouTube Channel. The unique thing about this product is that it uses your existing return line to basically create a secondary skimmer. And a highly effective skimmer using the power of the pools return jet. It creates a vortex effect with the water returning into the pool and traps the leaves and debris in a large fine mesh bag. I tested it on some pools on my route and it works great.

I've now had your skimmer for about a year, and it has performed beyond my highest expectations. Even Mr. Bernoulli would be impressed that his discovery* would be so valuable -- * Bernoulli's principle re fluid dynamics.

I got the PoolSkim plumbed into my pool pond (13k gallons) and pump. I turned it on and it cleaned the whole pond surface in about 15-30 minutes. It is amazing. On full flow it sucks up everything in the pond including any curious fish, lol. I have it restricted to around 3-5 gpm to avoid over doing it and it still is working great as it runs 24x7. On full flow, which probably is about 20 GPM (as you said), it is like a black hole and sucks up everything that isn’t tied down. It works 5 times faster on its own than the two built in pool skimmers do.
Thanks for a great product. It isn’t often I see things like this that exceed expectations.

I just received this product and installed it with no problems. I am completely amazed at how well it works. I have lots of grass and trees in my backyard and I get a lot of debris in the pool. This is the best investment I have made and the pool surface is pristine after just a few hours.

Just wanted to say how awesome this product is. Best 100 bucks I have spent on my pool.
This is the best product you can spend your money on to make owning a pool with trees that drop debris into your pool. I am so impressed at how this product works and at the ease of emptying the bag it's a true time saver and my pool never looked cleaner. No moving parts to break and once you have it adjusted, well just sit back and enjoy the pool the way it was intended to be enjoyed. Great product and so easy to install, now back to enjoying my pool.
I have an inground pool that is leaking water from a underground PVC pipe that runs between the skimmer and the filter. I called the previous owner and he said that this pool skimmer device was in the pool house. He told me that it works great and that he used it during the times he was away for long periods of time, instead of the regular skimmer. We have a lot of foliage falling into the pool and the regular skimmer stayed clogged while he was away. Rather than spending a lot of money, that I don't have, PoolSkim has saved our swimming season, this is working great.
V.T. (6/10/14)Thanks for all your help. Went to the pool store today to check my water and realized I was making some very basic 101 pool mistakes! My water level was low and it wasn't producing enough power to my returns. I added more water and a did a few extra steps to increase pressure and flow and poolSkim started to work great!Took some tweaking to maximize the suction effect, but now it's working awesome. Looking to add a great review to the rest of the happy customers! Can't see having a pool without one!

It is rare that I take the time to write a review of a product, but I felt the need to send my comments on the PoolSkim. I received and installed it a couple of weeks ago. The installation was super easy and I was amazed on how quickly it began sucking in leaves and other debris. The PoolSkim has made a huge difference in how we use our pool. We no longer have to manually skim the pool, so it is ready to use at a moment’s notice. We used to spend 15+ minutes skimming the pool each time we wanted to use it. Now we can jump right in at any time, no manual skimming needed. Thank you so much for this incredible product and time saver.

I recently purchased a pool skim and was a bit skeptical that it would work as well as stated by the reviews. I have now had it installed in my pool ( 39” long by 18” wide) for about 3 weeks. First a bit of history regarding my pool I have had it about 30 years, it has 2 returns, I have a Hayward variable speed motor. My property is surrounded by a lot of trees that belong to the neighbors and city, My problem was that I had to manually skim the pool daily and was getting tired of doing this every day. After installation of the pool skim I have not had to skim my pool once since installing it. It skims even the fine white ash that fall of the trees and normally would cause havoc with my filter. In short I recommend this product to everyone. My pool has never looked so clean in 30 years day after day, the real test will be in the fall when we experience the heavy leaf fall.. Installation was easy, what I did was a dry fit first to see how it actually fits together and then installed it in the pool. The only problem I had was determining which return to use. I run my motor at 2800 RPM,s for about 2 hours and it cleans my pool completely and take a lot of work off my automatic pool cleaner. The pool skim bag must be cleaned at least once a week.Thank you for such a wonderful product.

I received my Poolskim yesterday and installed it this morning. It is very refreshing to buy something that is all it is advertised to be. Excellent product.

Just dropping in to say THANKS! What an amazing product! Our 24' x 42' inground swimming pool is surrounded by two tiers of hedges and trees beyond those. My kids absolutely love not having to skim the pool each day. Even after a heavy thunderstorm the pool is clear of debris within a couple of hours. We use our pool almost year round here on the gulf coast in Alabama and this has been one of the best investments we have made for the pool. Thanks again!M.F. - AL
I installed my PoolSkim this afternoon. I always worry about doing-it-myself....those 'easy to install' items aren't always...easy to install!! And I have to admit that it did take me a little time to get the instructions to work for me, but I'm proud to say I did manage to get the PoolSkim connected to my pool without too much trouble. I even cut the piece of PVC tube to the correct size myself!What I wanted to express in this email is this......WOW!!! When I turned my pool filter/pump back on I was AMAZED at the way the PoolSkim went to work!! Every little floating bug, fuzzball and leaf was sucked into the PoolSkim with unbelievable speed! I stood there watching it work...it was mesmerizing! I let it do its job for about an hour and a half, and checked on it again. My water surface was PRISTINE! Usually I would see the normal collection of bugs, twigs, leaves, etc, floating around completely ignoring the skimmer basket. But with the PoolSkim hard at work, there was ABSOLUTELY NOTHING on the water's surface. I have to say....this is the best money I've spent on my pool EVER! I am going to order one for my friend's pool. She has a lot of trees in her back yard, and keeping her pool clean is a real challenge. This will make her pool cleaning chores a lot easier...and I KNOW she'll LOVE THAT!I just want to say THANK YOU for this wonderful product, and your help the other day on the phone.I LOVE my POOLSKIM!! I am one grateful pool owner and happy customer.

This product works so well, I am ordering a second one for my spa. I have a large in-ground pool sits under oak and cedar trees, and PoolSkim cleared the surface in less than 30 minutes. My pool service has stopped threatening to sneak in my yard at night and cut down all my trees….Thanks for a great product that delivers what it promises!

I absolutely enjoy my Poolskim. I had a dead spot in the steps where everything would accumulate. Not anymore. I dare say that Poolskim works better than my in the wall skimmer. I am going to recommend that my local pool shop carry the Poolskim and replacement bags.

The skimmer is truly a timesaver for pool owners with trees!

I purchased a PoolSkim skimmer earlier this year and absolutely love it. It has essentially eliminated hours of hand skimming and made my pool debris free.

I received a PoolSkim as a gift. I looked at the size of the box and thought how could something this small work in our pool. What a surprise, it works great! We no longer waste our time cleaning leaves and other floating debris from our pool.
A.S. - TX
I must admit that the PoolSkim is the best pool product I have ever purchased since I have had my pool. I bought it late last week from your site and I just received and installed it. It is working like a charm. I tried and returned almost everything out there to deal with the leaves and other stuff that my Oak trees shed. Nothing seems to be as consistent and solid as your product. PoolSkim works great even though my pool cleaner and Spa spill-over run at the same time. Thanks for creating this wonderful product.

I live in Eastern Massachusetts and own an outdoor, in-ground pool. I used to open my pool in late June because a lot of pollen and small debris from trees would fall on the surface of the pool during May and removing them manually was very time consuming. PoolSkim cut this cleaning job dramatically and encouraged me to open the pool much earlier. This year I opened it in April! My family and I enjoy our beautiful clean pool.

This is an absolute jewel. My pool is surrounded by trees and the prevailing winds blow the surface debris away from the skimmer. The return I am using with the Poolskim is in the exact spot where the debris is blown to. My pool has never looked so good or been so little work
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
G.R. - CanadaInstalled my PoolSkim today. Took all of 5 minutes and it works perfectly - even with multiple jets around the pool. All the parts I needed were included. I just used the 1&1/2 inch adapter, the attachment ring and one of the 90' elbows. Piece of cake!

What a fantastic product you have in the PoolSkim. We recently hooked it up (which was easy as can be), and are truly amazed at what a fantastic job it does in keeping the surface free from ALL debris. Wow! I was always annoyed that the surface water was never “clean” enough for me. Now, our pool really sparkles! I am a huge fan of the PoolSkim and I highly recommend it. [Contrary to my concerns about robotic pool cleaners knocking it around, we have not experienced that with our cleaner].

I should have added another sentence in my review... PoolSkim should be standard operating equipment on all pools - it is that good.

I love the Poolskim! It saves countless hours of manually skimming the pool. I do have a great deal of vegetation in my yard including some trees that shed little items and two long hair dogs which there is usually floating fur. I found that the smaller debris often goes through the net that came with the skimmer. I now attach a knee high stocking to the collar where the net is attached and then put the net over this to secure it. It catches everything! While its capacity is not as great as the net, it is very efficient with the smaller debris. I just pick the least expensive ones up at Walmart and for $5 I have about 20 (10 pairs for $5 a bargain for 25 cents each). This also allows me to change and put a new one on without having to clean the other first.
