Skimmer pools are characterized by the process of polluted pool water being drawn by the circulation pump through openings at the level of the surface of the water in order to be cleaned. The skimmer unit (surface cleaner) basically consists of an intake port including an adjustable weir as well as a fine-meshed sieve basket filter that captures major pollutants (leaves etc.) but allows the cleaned water to pass through to the spray nozzles that lead it back into the pool.
By default, the skimmer also features an easy-to-reach and use connection option for the hose of a pool floor cleaning unit. The required number of skimmers depends on the expanse of water and the high volume flow rate of the pool filter system.
