Here it is...the long awaited DIY skimmer neck cleaner!

Yes, it really is pretty easy to put one together.  With our newly designed shaft seal and motor assembly, the You-Built Swabbie goes together with basic tools (small flathead screwdriver and pliers) and common supplies (silicone or hot glue).  We include the required acrylic solvent needed to bond the motor assembly's components inside the housing.

The motor housing bonds to your skimmer's lid after a simple modification.  See photo instruction manuals below.

Depending on the diameter of your skimmer's neck or riser tube, choose the appropriate blade size as shown in the diagram to the left.

Excellent addition to my tank.

The swabbie was super easy it assemble and install and is doing a great job of making my skimmer more efficient by keeping that normally nasty neck spanking clean! Super fast shipping and delivery!

Very satisfied with the swabbie, easy enough to install yourself. Only way to go with a skimmer.

Skimmer swabbie

Overall the kit was great, simple to assemble and all the parts needed. My only gripe would be the plastic shavings that the bag was full of, made a big mess and I had to clean everything off before assembly.

Swabiee

Easy to diy and install. One thing that I wish is hopefully can provide the skimmer model that customer own for easy drilling. :)
