    Re: How to use suction-based vacuum with dual outlets?

    I've got the Intex skimmer too. I was wondering if I could connect to two inlets on the inside of the pool to a T that connects to the skimmer and get proper suction to the skimmer.

    Easier to just block off one of the inlets.

    Just purchased a intex skimmer last week. It came with a little rubber condom with a hole in it that goes on the second suction port to reduce its flow. My skimmer works good with that. But i dont really like reducing the flow.
