    Hayward wide mouth skimmer

    Was going to replace my AG 18 ft lomart skimmer with a standard Hayward skimmer.
    Does the new wide mouth model really make that much difference?

    My skimmer is located under a trap door in the deck and may have to make some modifications if I went to the wide mouth.

    To change to either skimmer planning on using some 26 gauge stainless sheet metal.

    Thanks

    I went with the wide mouth, I am not sure if it made a huge difference but it's suppose to allow a longer time to let debris get sucks into the skimmer

    I have a standard Hayward skimmer & use a "Skim it" which I love.
