Vacuum Plates / Skimtrol

Vacuum Plates are required when using an automatic pool cleaner or performing manual cleaning of your swimming pool.

Skimtrol Vacuum Plates are used as a replacement for your standard vacuum plate that came with your pool’s skimmer box.

A Skimtol plate is equipped with a suction control valve which allows the user to regulate the amount of water being bypassed to an automatic pool cleaner.

Simply turning the valve clockwise, will decrease the pool’s ability to skim the pool’s surface and allow more water flow to the suction cleaner and increase the speed of the unit. Turning the valve counter-clockwise will then slow the cleaner down and increase the pool’s skimming action.
