Product Description

Color: Tan

Critter Skimmer is an invention that allows frogs, turtles, mice, and other small critters to rescue themselves from in-ground pool skimmers. Replacing the pool skimmer cover with a Critter Skimmer allows animals that invariably end up in the pool to climb up the attached spiral rescue ramp and through the opening in the skimmer cover to safety. "Going Green" is everywhere today. People challenge themselves and others to tread lightly on Mother Earth. Critter Skimmer offers pool owners an easy, green way to reduce the impact of their pool on the environment. Additionally, pool owners can use fewer chemicals in their pools when there are no dead bodies to retrieve. Customers have written to us thanking us for allowing them to save endangered species from drowning including a baby alligator, snapping turtle, and countless frog species. People have made it very clear to us that they care. Critter Skimmer was voted "Best New Product" at the Las Vegas International Pool, Spa, and Patio Show in Las Vegas in November 2008. Installation of a Critter Skimmer is mandatory in Groton, Massachusetts. The Municipal Conservation Commission stipulates Critter Skimmer installation when construction or improvements are made to pools.

Purchase 2 for our month-old in-ground pool, which seemed to be attracting and killing 2 - 3 frogs every other day. Since installing Critter Skimmer, we have had no fatalities! The product is better constructed than I expected. The lid is very solid and fits well in my Hayward skimmers. The ramp is flexible but firm. All in all, a great product, creatively serving a real need!

WOW! This really works. Thanks for this. We have gone from seeing up to 11 frogs a day in the pool to none.

I have had this for several seasons and have not had one casualty since replacing the cover with this (formerly a regular occurance). Would buy it again without hesitation.

I found the Critter Skimmer online after repeatedly discovering many small dead frogs in our skimmer. It was delivered in 2 days and easy to assemble. The lid is a few centimeters shy of a snug fit like my other lid but it's secure enough. We just had heavy rains yesterday and I usually find a bunch of frogs the next morning. I just checked the skimmer and not one frog, dead or alive. That's a first so it must be working. :-)

Oh and the ramp is plenty long enough to reach the water. Those who say it isn't long enough may not be keeping enough water in their pools. Pools should maintain a certain level of water, usually reaching halfway up the top tile.

I'm used to obsessively checking the pool for spiders, frogs, and other creatures that accidentally fell in. But becoming more and more busy with school and work I knew each time I checked the pool I'd be met with more dead creatures. I rigged up several of my own devices to save as many of them as possible but I needed something more effective. After designing my own device centered around the skimmer cover I then discovered something was already made! After I read the reviews I gave it a shot and I'm very pleased with the results.

After just a month of owning the Critter Skimmer I've only found one dead grasshopper. Not a single frog, spider, or even an ant. Granted, I haven't actually witnessed any creatures crawl up and out through the Critter Skimmer, but I don't think it's a coincidence that once I started using this product that the dead critter count has decreased so drastically.

Although pricey for what they consist of, these really work -- provided the bottom of the coil just touches the top of the water in the skimmer. As received, our devices were slightly too short, so I heated them gently over a stove burner to stretch them out. Instead of losing several frogs a week, over several weeks we've now lost only two: one very tiny, and another too large to make it through the hole. Five stars except for the need to use heat to have it at just the right length; for this kind of money they should have the kind of plastic that can be stretched back and forth without being heated.

We love having frogs in our yard and were crestfallen when we found them drowned in our skimmer trap. Since buying this cover we haven't lost a single frog. My only negative comment is that if our water level drops too low, the ladder does not reach low enough to touch the water. I wish the ladder was about 2 inches longer. I have read other comments about the cover not sitting flush with the pool deck, but we measured according to the instructions and got a perfect fit that sits flush with the deck.
