Skim-A-Round is an effective “additional-skimmer” that people use to improve the performance of their wall skimmers. Some pool owners even use this product as the only skimmer for their facilities, and it does an excellent job of collecting dirt, debris, and other material.

Unlike wall skimmers, this device comes with small openings that add to its effectiveness. The water from your pool moves via these spaces at a higher velocity which increases the suction power.
Due to that, the skin-a-round skimmer pulls more debris from the water and even from a further distance. That means your pool remains clean and without floating material within minutes.
Another thing you should know about these gadgets is that they were made to float in your pool. What that means is that they are not affected by the level of the water in your facility.
You might have noticed that wall skimmers require you to refill your pool when the water drops to a certain level. That is not the case with skim-a-round models as they continue to work no matter the water level.
Installing a skim-a-around skimmer is also quite easy. You only need to attach it to the vac line or to an existing wall skimmer (bottom hole) if you want to use it as an extra device.
4 Models of Skim-A-Round
There are four main models of skim-around skimmers that you can get on the market today. These units are:
1. Skim-A-Round “Original”
The model guarantees a crystal-clear swimming pool within minutes. It is a stand-alone, floating device that connects directly into your pool’s suction line or to an existing wall skimmer.
The unit extends eight feet from the walls and starts to clean your pool from both sides. It can easily pull leaves and other debris from a far distance due to its unique design and engineering.
Besides, the skimmer rotates quite slowly during the day, minimizing swaying due to water movement. You can set it up within five minutes and it works even when the water level is low.
Another thing about the original skimmer is that it takes all the debris in a full-size basket.
2. Skim-A-Round “As Vac Attachment”
The second model of skim-a-round you can get out there is the “As Vac Attachment” model that connects to your present suction-powered floor vac. Once you attach it, it moves around your swimming pool to clean the pool surface.
It also comes with a full-size skimmer basket that collects all the debris – no debris can get out. The skimmer also boasts of the unique design and engineering of a skin-a-round device and you can install it within minutes.
3. Skim-A-Round “Ultimate”
The “Ultimate” model falls in between the “Vac Attachment” and “Original” versions. It comes with all the features that you would need to use it as a stand-alone or a vac attachment skimmer.
That means you can alternate between the two applications if you wish. The ability to use the two combinations ensure that your pool remains crystal clear, even if you don’t turn on the pool’s vacuum.
4. Skim-A-Round “All-In-One”
If you want the latest model, then the All-In-One” skimmer should be the model for you. It was made to transform how your current wall skimmer works.
The model uses all the technology of the above skimmers, but it works within the present skimmer housing. It does not move across your swimming pool, but it does enhance the effectiveness of the wall skimmer and get rid of debris in a pool.
Skim-A-Round Protects Pool Pump
A lot of pool pumps get damaged every year because of running without water. What happens when the water in your pool drops below the skimmer’s opening due to evaporation and leaking.
If you don’t add water, the pump can begin to pull air and take it to the system. A skin-a-round device has an air-tight design that connects to the wall skimmer and floats on the water.
Thus, there is no possibility of sucking in the air even when the water level is low.
Skim-a-round skimmers are effective devices that can remove debris and leaves from the water surface. These gears are designed to work even when the water level is low.
