  • Good idea poor application By cbellm on 2/13/2016

    sags and is smaller than the recommended size skimmer's footprint. I cut a single piece of 4" PVC to place under mine to keep from breaking in the middle
  • Too Weak By Eric on 9/28/2015

    Skimmer is to heavy. Sags in middle
  • Waste of money!! By Brandon on 8/9/2015

    Does NOT support weight of your skimmer. There are no supporting brackets underneath in the middle so with the weight of your skimmer the platform sags a lot which forces the legs to bow outwards. It looks really well built and pretty awesome but once you try to use it you realize it's not worth it. Only way it will work is if the legs fit right up against your sump walls so they can't be pushed outwards from the sagging platform.
  • not worth the $ By Patrick Egal on 8/6/2015

    Serously $50? Just trim a piece of eggcrate, cut some pvc piping into 4 pieces for the legs, then drill 1/4" hole near the top of each leg so they can be secured to the eggcrate base with tie straps. less than $5.
