Worried that it will disrupt your safety? Well, it wont. This blog has all kind of tips on achieving pool style without giving up on safety. Enjoy swimming in style!

New Pool Construction Services: 4 Unique Skimmer Ideas You Should Consider

Designing, a beautiful swimming pool requires several important decisions. An often overlooked component of the swimming pool is the skimmer. This essential piece of equipment helps keep your pool clean and free of debris. While there are many standard skimmer designs available, you can also choose from various unique ideas to give your pool that special touch. Read on to discover four unique skimmer ideas that you can use in your new pool construction services project. 

Floating Skimmer

A floating skimmer adds a modern, stylish look to your pool. The skimmer is designed to float on the surface of the water, where it can remove debris and contaminants. Floating skimmers are usually made from stainless steel or plastic with built-in jets to help power the skimmer and move it around the pool. Your pool contractor can help you choose the right size and type of floating skimmer for your pool.

Subsurface Skimmer

The subsurface skimmers are installed directly beneath the surface of your pool. The skimmer is designed to draw water from the pool and direct it through an intake system. The water is then filtered before being returned to the pool. Subsurface skimmers are great for pools that don't have a lot of room around the perimeter. If your pool is located in a tight space, consider installing a subsurface skimmer.

Remotely Controlled Skimmer

For the ultimate convenience, you can install a remotely controlled skimmer. The skimmer can be operated with a smartphone or other device, allowing you to quickly and easily keep your pool clean and free of debris. Remotely controlled skimmers are great for busy homeowners who don't have the time to manually operate a skimmer.

Solar-Powered Skimmer

For an eco-friendly option, consider installing a solar-powered skimmer. These skimmers use the power of the sun to help operate the skimmer and collect debris from your pool. Solar-powered skimmers are easy to install and maintain and are a great option for those who want to reduce their environmental impact. Consult your pool contractor to learn more about this unique skimmer option.

When you're planning your new pool construction services project, don't forget to consider these four unique skimmer ideas. Floating skimmers, subsurface skimmers, remotely controlled skimmers, and solar-powered skimmers can help keep your pool clean and free of debris. Talk to your pool contractor to learn more about these skimmer options and determine which one is right for your needs.
