Floating pool skimmer includes a hollow unit above the water surface and a filter chamber between a water intake and a water outlet. The water moves through the skimmer as it moves about on the water surface. This device has the disadvantage that it requires propulsion on the surface of the water. It collects the leaves and debris on the surface. The debris is directed downwards by water jets into a mesh bag. The device relies on the use of these water jets to clean the pool and for propulsion, which requires extra piping and pumps.
