The overflow swimming pool at Lakeyard is a skimmer pool. A skimmer pool has water levels at equal levels on the surface of the tiles. The skimmer pool doesn’t have a traditional overflow channel. Instead, water will be removed from the surface by means of a skimmer.
A skimmer is an automated system that removes debris from the surface of a body of water, such as a swimming pool. A leaf trap or leaf basket is placed in front of or as part of the skimmer to prevent larger objects (leaves, insects) from entering the pump’s impeller or filter.
