Description & Features

Product Description

This skimmer is built to NSF 50 and SPS 3 standards, ensuring high quality and safety. It features an adjustable collar and weir clip lock for secure operation, a large self-contained basket with a lock-in feature to prevent floating, and pre-installed O-ring for the float assembly. Noise reduction is achieved with underwater dampers on the faceplate. The skimmer's durable construction includes a super strong engineered polymer upper housing and an extra heavy-duty PVC lower unit that requires no transitional glue. It offers flexible connection options (2½" outside slip; 2" inside slip for the outside skimmer, and 2" threads for pressure testing inside the skimmer), a built-in overflow or fill line knock-out, and UV-tested skimmer lid and collar. Additionally, it provides an optional custom name/logo engraving on the lid for orders of 500 or more, ensuring adaptability to all existing vinyl liner pool walls.
