Product Highlights

Moves with ease

Removing leaves, pollen, oils, and other debris from the surface of your pool in an efficient manner is what makes the SkimDevil unique. It cleans the surface of the pool before those items float to the bottom, where your pumps and filters have to work overtime to clean them. And because it runs day or night without you having to charge it, you can sit back and relax, knowing your pool will always be clean.

The latest in mapping technology

You can’t fool the SkimDevil. It can easily navigate around any obstacle and get back on track with its patent-pending SkimSmart technology. Play, swim, or relax without worrying about being in the way. The SkimDevil saves a map of your entire pool, so it knows where it’s been and where it still needs to go. It can also clean tight spaces, so you don’t have to.

Environmentally friendly

Because the SkimDevil uses smart mapping technology, maneuvers around objects, and catches objects before they float to the bottom, it saves you money on replacing your pumps and filters, and reduces the need for you to use additional chemicals to keep your water balanced.

Control it with your smartphone

Control the SkimDevil with your Android or iOS device, even when you’re not home. While you can always check your pool temperature, battery status, and charge settings manually, the Android and iOS apps make it even easier to remember to check up on your pool.

Solar powered

The solar powered SkimDevil means you don’t have to fiddle with cords, electricity near the water, or batteries. Use the sun’s energy to charge your cleaner during the day, even when it’s in use, so that it can run at night as well. These efficiencies save you money and are good for the environment.

Schedule cleanings

Schedule cleanings when they work for you, so you don’t have to be bothered by the cleaner while you’re using the pool. You can set up a rotation manually or from the app and then forget about it. Of course, you can always start an unscheduled cleaning if needed. You never have to come home to a dirty pool again.

RC mode

As if letting it clean according to its schedule isn’t enough, you can also use the app to control the SkimDevil yourself. If you find that a specific area of the pool needs a little extra attention, you can tell the SkimDevil where to go and what to clean.

Android and iOS apps

Did we mention the SkimDevil has an app? Well, it does, and it won’t leave you wanting. You can do just about anything from the app that you would ever need to do. You can set up a cleaning schedule, turn it on and off, check the stats of the cleaner, and use RC mode. In fact, the SkimDevil was designed to be used primarily with a smartphone or tablet. The special attention that went into designing the latest in surface skimming technology also went into a streamlined app experience.
