Actually it does in a round about way. The waves that crash on the beachs and bluffs aid in removing DOC

I agree on not completely cleaning the entire skimmer housing but it's definately a good idea to soak the powerhead in a vinegar/water solution occassionally. It will greatly extend it's life and efficiency. Also be sure intake hoses or similar are cleaned monthly if possible. Dried salts and such will collect restricting air flow and reduce efficiency.
