Mesh Mod for the cheap needle wheel imellars is easy, and can make a big boy skimmer out of your cheap skimmer. And all this for only a bit of your time, and a couple of bucks to the mesh material
#1- Remove your impellar from your pump. You'll want to cut off the nubs on the blades, only leaving the outter ones for stability.

Next, you need the mesh. I got mine off E-Bay. just cost a couple of bucks. Cut a square off about the size of your impellar head, doesn't have to be perfect as after gluing it on, you'll need to trim.

Next, I use super glue to attach the mesh to the impellar.

After it sets up for a few minutes, make another layer of mesh and glue the same as the first. I use 3 layers on mine. This will all depend on your clearance on the cap that goes over the impellar housing.
