Hi all,

how and what did you use to clean your skimmer chamber when it is covered with thick algae and stubborn stains?:rolleye1:

Just rinse it under tap water and scrub with a sponge. The basics of cleaning, don't use detergents of any kind.

Vinegar. 'Not sure how you're plumbed; hopefully you can remove the skimmer while the pump is running. If so, fill the chamber with a vinegar and water solution and let it soak for at least 24 hours. It should clean right up.

I usually give my skimmer a warm water and vinegar bath every few months. ;)
