    I see "skimmer" mentioned in this section... I have an IG with a skimmer that's just in a bad spot; wind almost always blows "crud" to opposite end of pool. Mostly bugs, pollen, and cottonwood cotton. Get rid of it one day, it's there the next. Any good floating skimmers out there (DIY or reasonably priced)? I thought about buying a pond pump and making one and letting it travel around with a cord... or even a solar panel. An independent one would be best that does require the pool pump, so it can run all day. A cheap robot turned upside down? Any good products out there?
