    INTEX 14X42 ULTRA FRAME adding hayward skimmer

    Hello all!

    I'm just completing setting up my Intex pool for my 4 year old and am going to add a Hayward skimmer.

    I have a few questions.

    Should I just plug the original 2 intakes from the pool and just have the skimmer as the only intake or is there an advantage to having all three?

    Also, when attaching the skimmer, can I keep the gasket intact and cut the hole prior to installing the skimmer? I've seen it both ways when looking online.

    I plan to hard plumb everything in. Is there a link for the most reliable 40 mm to 1 1/2 adapters, or is it possible to do the plumbing without them?

    Thanks.

    Depending on the number of returns you may be best off using one of the suction fittings as a return line after you add the skimmer.
