A pool skimmer is generally built into the side of or around the top of a swimming pool in order to skim debris from the surface of the water. A pool filter is built into the Plumbing in order to filter fine debris from the water itself.

What kind of skimmer should be used with an 18 ft X 48 inch round above-ground swimming pool if the pump being used is a Meteor 21 sand filter system?

Firstly, the pump is not a sand filter system. The pump is the one with the motor attached and it pumps water not sand. The large round tank is the "sand" filter. You would have to find a skimmer made for vinyl pools with gaskets. It attaches to the wall of the pool and is seen "hanging" from the outside of the pool. The type of pool and equipment have no factor in choosing a skimmer. another good way to go is the Dragonfly Super skimmer this is a floating pool skimmer and only requires a hose to connect it to suction


If the water level in the pool is too high for the skimmer to work propertly can I still run the filter?

You can run the filter, however, you should drain some water out for maximum use, the skimmer will not skim the pool if the water level is to high. go to www.askpoolquestions.com for more info.


Where and how do you apply the DE to the pool filter?

After the filter has been backwashed, the filter valve is switched back to filter and the DE is added to the skimmer. The amount of DE to use should be shown on the filter and depends on the size of the filter area. The DE should first be mixed in a bucket with water then poured into the skimmer with the filter running.
