I'm in the process of renovating my in ground 20x40 concrete pool. It was built in 1971 and has two skimmers, however one was disconnected years ago and the pool has been operating fine on one (closest to house middle of pool). It seems to collect most of the surface debris with no problem. I don't get a lot of stuff in my pool, but I still have to clean the skimmer once a day in the spring and fall. In the summer, I clean it once every couple days.
Here is my dilemma: One company suggests to put in only one skimmer, as the second one is overkill, and since my pool has been running fine with one, why spend the extra $$$. The other company suggests to put both skimmers in since the pool was designed to have two. The extra skimmer will cost me about $2500 after parts, new lines, taxes, etc (that's the price around here). I trust both companies.
Question: Is the extra $2500 worth it?
