    Two or Three Skimmers?


    My pool builder says that he may include three skimmers in the pool instead of two. I have a 750 sf pool with approximately 30 to 35K gallons. Any suggestions or thoughts? Thank you

    Re: Two or Three Skimmers?

    For a pool that size, three skimmers is probably better. The difference isn't going to be large between two or three. Three are less likely to get clogged with leaves all three at the same time, while two lets you run a variable speed pump at a slightly lower speed for some minor energy savings.
