    SOFT SIDED SKIMMER OPTIONS ?

    What are the options for skimmers on an intex soft sided ultra frame pool ? has anyone ever added a traditional style doughboy skimmer (outside the pool) to a soft sided pool ? I 'm sure the skimmer will work that way but the weight needs to be supported somehow other than on the liner/sidewall...........IS THIS TOO FAR OUT OF WHACK?? maybe i sniffed too many chemicials in the shed ....help!!!!

    SORRY about that... but you were not CLEAR as to what you already had. The skimmer mentioned above could work, but like in the pics, you'll need something to support it...the pics above show it resting on a deck, but I'm sure it's something you could figure out with a 2x4 or two Good luck
