Equipment & Other Hardware

This is a plastic frame with a screen that is attached to a telescopic pole for removal of surface debris.
Often referred to as a “flapper” on the skimmer, a weir’s main job is to keep large debris from getting back into the pool water after it has passed into a skimmer basket. In other words, it acts like a one-way door for leaves, bugs or anything else that was pulled in by the skimmer from the pool’s surface.
