    Skimmer trouble

    i have upgraded from a regular metal Intex 18x42 inch pool to an ultra with the same dimensions. The only problem is that the ultra has two inlets to filter. Has any one been able to modify the skimmer for this new pool and how do u vacuum with two ports instead of one?


    ag, sand filter 6k gallons

    Re: Skimmer trouble

    Do you mean 2 lines to the filter? Our skimmer is hooked to one and there was a small black hat looking thing we put over the other when we vacuum. We just put the vacuum tube into the skimmer tube, making sure to keep it all under water so it doesn't suck air.
    Hope that makes sense.

    Intex - Round, Above Ground, Vinyl - 22'X52" / 10475 gal. Full sun 95% of day. Sand Filter w/ SWG.
