Pool Skimmer – The Skimmer is a team present in most of the private pools, is part of the filtration equipment along with the filter itself, the jets, the sink etc. If you look at us when we bathe, we will find that on the walls, near the edge, there is one or several windows with a damper, that window is the Skimmer. Skimmer main function, although not the only one, to prevent that which falls to our swimming pool.
For example, leaves or insects finishes in the bottom is one of the main functions of this element. It complies with this function aided by others such as the suction pump or the jets of impulses and does it as follows: The pump is connecting to the pool skimmer by the lower part of it and when it starts up, it creates a movement in the water that attracts the leaves that we used to use as an example to the Skimmer.
It is a movement almost imperceptible to people but effective. For this effect to be more powerful it is advisable to close the suction valves of the cleaner and the sump, so the pump will only suck on the pool skimmer and the movement in the water will only occur on the surface that is what we intend. It also counts for this task with the help of the power jets.
