    Could you post a picture from the other side showing how you tied the skimmer into the suction side please? I was under the impression the skimmer took the place of the suction ports. We are wanting to make this mod as well.

    TIA

    I didn't tie it in. I closed the valves and disconnected the hose. Once I can, im replacing the Intex ports with Hayward ports and plugs so I can remove the dangling hoses.
