This skimmer is rock-solid. Like mentioned in the other reviews, it is made with thick durable plastic, unlike the flimsy ones sold by other pool supply companies at double the price. The support brace is also a great feature since the weight of a skimmer tends to pull the pool wall down, causing cracks, leaks, etc. The hose connections are also nice and well thought out. Most hose connections are tapered while the ones on this unit are straight with little ridges to hold the hoses on. Even with hose clamps, hoses still slide off tapered connections. My only issue with this skimmer is that the basket keeps floating up when the pump turns off but I resolved that issue by placing a small rock in the basket. Overall, you won't find a more durable skimmer for such a great price. I'm thinking of buying another one but hopefully, I won't need it for several years to come.
