Hayward Brand Skim Vac Plate: Easy to Use and Works EVERY Time

Aug 4, 2010

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:works very well
I like the vertical system

Cons:nothing

The Bottom Line:

I like Hayward brand parts. They are easily found in our local pool supply shops and also in our local hardware store. They're made well, last long and don't discolour.


We vacuum our pool most every day in the summer because we don't cover it at night and the pool collects debris of leaves, pear parts (squirrels eating in our tree) and other 'stuff'.

To vacuum we use our
25' hose
Triangular Vacuum Brush
A 3 Piece Telescoping pole
and this Skim Vac that attaches directly to our above ground, through the poo,l skimmer.

Hayward Brand Skim Vac Plate

This is a plastic molded piece that has an 1 1/2" male opening that slides into the female hose end. We don't need clamps  or such to keep it on. Friction works just fine and it slips off fairly easily too.

The disc part of the plate is designed to fit perfectly into the basket area of the skimmer that is on the outside part of the unit. The hose attachment stands straight up vertically and the hose comes over the pool wall and attaches. It does NOT go through the skimmer as with plates with 90 degree fittings.

I like this vertical better than the horizontal that we had until this change and used for years. For some reason we get immediate and better suction every single time. With the horizontal we did have to re-prime every once in a while even though it fit tightly.

pops Last Thoughts

I happen to like Hayward brand parts. They are easily found in our local pool supply shops and also in our local small hardware store. They are made well, last long and don't discolour. This particular piece the Skim Vac adapter works very well. I like the vertical design and it makes maintenance on our pool easier.
