GREAT Product and superior customer service Nov 14, 2019
Skimmer is easy to put together and works great. Very quiet too. I had a problem with the pump (intermittent failure). After demonstrating that the root cause was the pump (troubleshooting's logic)andshowing a receipt, I received within 3 days a replacement pump with instructions for its replacement (as it had been improved on the new units). GREAT PRODUCT and GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE. SIMPLICITY is the real thing. I will definitely look for that brand in my future purchases...
Great build, a little noisy Sep 30, 2017
This is a fantastic skimmer. The Simplicity customer support people are really great too. They'll respond within an hour on weekdays to help you out, and really want to make things right.

My only problem is, it's kind of loud. With the wedge pipe closed off, everything will vibrate just enough to make more noise than any other pump. I've tried disassembling and putting everything back together nice and snug, but there's no helping it.

The noise is normal, doesn't seem to be anything broken, just not as quiet as I hoped a DC pump driven skimmer would be.
