For those of you that have installed a through-wall skimmer on your Intex pool, what determined where you placed it in the pool? I'm not asking about height, but rather where, in the pool.
It seems from the pics I've seen that most place it near the existing holes & equipment pad. Is that just because some are using the intex hoses and aren't hard-plumbing everything?
My last pool was in-ground, and the returns and skimmer were far apart, and the returns pushed the water towards the skimmer, which made sense to me.
I see pics of round pools on here and the skimmer is installed right next to the return, and that isn't making sense to me. What am I missing? I've never had a round pool before. Does it have something to do with the round shape and water movement? I plan to hard-plumb and get rid of the Intex hoses, so could do any distance. I'm curious as to what is best and why?
