    Want to add larger skimmer to an above ground pool

    My pool is an intex 16ft and I would like to upgrade the filtration by replacing my pump, filter, and skimmer. Has anyone put in a larger through the wall skimmer in one of these pools?

    welcome to TFP...I think you'll see multiple examples, just search the forum for Intex Skimmer

    Dman is right there's at least one excellent example of a wide-mouth skimmer being mounted in an Intex pool.

    gayler, welcome to the forum.

    I also had the 16' intex pool and I added a thru-wall skimmer to mine and it worked great. Please read the link below to my skimmer addition.
