I take mine apart every month or so and clean it. However it takes about a day or two to break in again.

I just use warm water and a clean sponge. My skimmer is big enough to get my hand in it. It doesn't get very dirty in the bottom anyway. So it's not that bad too clean. Collection cup is the nasty part.

Has your skimmer ever produced skimmate? Are you still breaking it in?
