In case I ever decide to replace skimmer
Besides Lomart does anyone make a above ground skimmer like this.
When you vacuum the water goes thru the skimmer basket first. So I only need to empty the pump basket about once a season.
Hard to get under my deck to the pump so it makes it so much easier with a back problem.
Trap door in deck lets me get to everything else I need from above.
Only thing I never liked about the lomart is the output nipple on the skimmer is more like a 1 ¼” instead of the larger 1 ½” I see on haywards.
And also wondered if that effects my flow much.
2 yr old ¾ HP Hayward superpump with a 20 year old Jaccuzzi sand filter.
About every 5 years replace sand clena out and inspect. But everything still look and works good so never replaced the filter. Used on a 18 ft. x 4 ft above ground with 18” burried in ground.
