  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Received the SolaSkimmer last night. Unpacked it and charged it. Put it in the pool this morning. Pool surface was full of debris since we were away for a week. The SolaSkimmer had it all cleaned up in an hour. Pool looks awesome! Reset pool filter and pool sweep to run at night when electricity is cheaper. Should pay for itself in a matter of months

    I am a senior female and would have to lean over my unground pool to lift out. Are there handles and what is the weight pls?

    • 17lbs. You can pull it from the pool by the top edge from the front.

    I just received this today. After charging it up I put it to work right away. The skimmer seems to be doing its job fine except it will, from time to time, get stuck on a wall that separates the pool from a small jacuzzi. This wall flushes with the water surface (like that in an infinity pool) that the skimmer doesn’t seem to be able to detect it and back off because the infrared sensors are above water, ie. above the wall. Did I do something wrong or this is just the way this skimmer works?

    • I know we have already discussed this with you, but I will go ahead and post a response up here for others’ benefit. If your pool has a jacauzzi/pool with a below-the-waterline wall, then there’s not much we can do. The SolaSkimmer sensors are on top, not bottom, so it’s not going to know to turn. This will probably not work in this case. Sorry.

    Looks like a cool product that will save time cleaning the pool!

    How many total watts are the solar panels? How long does it take to fully charge utilizing the plug in charger if the battery is completely depleted? Can the plug in charger be left outside and if so can the unit safely charge if it wet or raining?

    • 32 Watts. Wall charger will get you going for a full day within a 2-3 hour charge. The unit should run all day on it’s own if it’s sunny. You should charge it in a covered area away from the rain, and of course, away from the pool.

    • 32 Watts on the panels, however, the wall charger should give you a boost if you need it. I wouldn’t leave it plugged in where it can get wet on the wall socket, though.

    how much does the tray hold? i have a lot of trees. my two pool skimmers need to be emptied often and am hoping that this would lessen that burden.

    • Great question. The tray will hold the equivalent of about a “gallon” of material.

    I did a lot of research on a competitor brand and was close to purchasing at double the price you are offering yours. I would love to give yours a shot instead. I purchased your solar shock from costco because I love their warranties and no hassle in store return policies. Will this product eventually be sold through Costco as well? If so when will it hit?wondering if it is worth it for me to wait…thanks

    • Yes, it will be on within the next few months. Costco tends to price their products the way they want, but the suggested retail on our product is $499. Again, we expect Costco to discount this, so you are certainly welcome to wait. (We wouldn’t give you any hassle either, but it’s certainly up to you. We love Costco as well 😉

    CAn I use this while I’m running my filter pump?

    • We recommend not to run the pump and SolaSkimmer at the same time, but it won’t hurt anything. Sometimes the SolaSkimmer will get stuck temporarily in the intake skimmer, but will usually work itself out. It just depends on the speed of your water flow. Even then, it will still pick up debris. If you can, we recommend running your pump at night, and your SolaSkimmer during the day. Our test pools have worked fine with this combination, especially using Sun Shock to keep algae growth down. Great question. Thank you.

    Fantastic idea. I just ordered and can’t wait to try it. My only concern is using my pool sweep. Can I use both at the same time? When will it ship?

    • We recommend that if you have floating hoses on your pool surface, that you do not use SolaSkimmer at the same time. We have found it’s quite simple to run your pool sweep for a day, then remove it when using SolaSkimmer. We have also found that you don’t need to run your pool sweep as often if your pool surface is cleaned of debris. SolaSkimmer has been tested to perform around most water features and obstacles, but it’s best not to have it try to move against floating hoses. It’s a lot easier to use SolaSkimmer to clean your pool surface, and remove your pool sweep every now and then instead of skim your pool by hand every day. Your SolaSkimmer will ship Thursday, March 2nd (for all orders today). Thank you for a great question!

    I really like the idea. I also see there are only a few left at this price. What is the warranty?

    • The warranty is for 12 months, but we will pay for any shipping if any repairs or warranty work is needed. We don’t expect you to have any problems since we have been testing for quite a while. Thank you for your question.

    • New shipment coming in soon. Contact 12 month warranty.

    I received an email about this product – If I may suggest, that,if your goal is actual field testing you should not be charging people money for it ! ….. Sorry to say but what you have is a mere prototype and not an actual product. 400$ for a floating rectangular box … you can do better

    • It’s actually not a prototype. It’s an actual production product. We’ve been testing for 2 years. We just thought we’d offer a discount for the first 49 and get feedback. The feedback is worth it to us. We don’t anticipate problems because it works great. But before we go into retail distribution, we just wanted to offer this to our Sun Shock customers first. I understand your concern, but it’s real, and there’s a lot of good technology in “the box”.

    I can’t believe you all invented this. What a hit! I love it so far. But what’s amazing is how many small particles SolaSkimmer picks up. My pool didn’t look that bad until SolaSkimmer worked on it for a couple hours. Tons of stuff in the basket. Awesome!
