The purpose of the Intex skimmer is to catch any leaves and/or debris before they sink to the bottom of your pool. The great feature about the Skimmer is that it can work with almost any water pump with the capacity to pump more than 500 gallons per hour.


  • Many users have found the skimmer to be a brilliant addition to any pool pump/filter system.
  • It can efficiently collect floating material at the surface such as various bugs, leaves and other debris.
  • This surface skimmer is easy to install and maintain.


A common problem identified by users is that the skimmer only functions correctly if it is set at exactly the right level in relation to the water level.

Intex Pool Surface Skimmer Customer Reviews

For all of those of us that purchased one of those round, bean bag looking swimming pools, with the inflated ring at the top, this is an outstanding addition to the pump/filter system that collects floating material at the surface (bugs,etc.) and spares the small paper filter the burden of collecting this material and requiring more frequent changes. This skimmer is a breeze to install and maintain. I HIGHLY reccommend this product.

Coop, Amazon Customer Review

Our pool sits under a Pine Tree therefore “thousands of pine needles and seedlings drop into our pool daily. I would skim the pool three or four times a day and when I was even in the pool I was constantly skimming the pool. My husband installed the skimmer in less than five minutes – and when I went out to check on it an hour later I almost cried – the pool was 100% pine tree clean. Since we have purchased this skimmer I have not skimmed the pool once. I HIGHLY recommend this to everyone, you will not be disappointed.

B Beck, Amazon Customer Review

Don’t listen to the reviews that say it’s too flimsy, this is actually a well built device that does great at skimming EVERYTHING off of the surface of the water. After three days running four hours each day it had nearly 2 inches of leaves, bugs and debris that had blown in. Remove the bucket, dump on lawn, replace and walk away. Easily saved me 20-30 minutes of skimming, hence worth every penny.
