Abstract

See full text

A pool skimmer system includes a skimmer housing and a basket. The skimmer housing includes a deck throat opening, a pool throat opening, a lower skimmer rim, an upper skimmer rim, a pump inlet port, a pool return port, and a pump suction port. The basket is positioned within the housing and includes a lower basket rim engaged with the lower skimmer rim, an upper basket rim engaged with the upper skimmer rim, porous walls, and a pool inlet opening proximate the pool throat opening. A fluid path is formed within the skimmer housing and extends from the pump suction port to the area between the one porous sidewall of the upper skimmer housing and the skimmer interior wall to allow fluid communication between the one or more suction ports and the upper basket rim.
