    If you'll search through the Intex threads you'll see some step by step instructions on how to install the skimmer and the plumbing.

    The top pic was mine so i feel free to comment haha. If you have never worked with pvc before it may be a little more difficult but you can get it done. just buy a few extra pieces of pipe and connectors along with a good hacksaw. there wont be too many step by step threads on how to glue everything together but definetly search for how to install that skimmer basket like you are talking about. Just look at a lot of pictures and go for it, worse case, you can always put your hoses back on.

    I basically clamped a carpenters square to the pipe. Drew a line down it with a sharpie. Then I used a clamp on the pipe and kind of stabilized it on my table. Then I just started drilling holes along the line. I just spaced them apart how I felt they should be. see this pic below, maybe it would help. O and after i was done, i used some sand paper to get the sharpie line off.

    BigT8600, your sprayer is on the return inlet, correct? So with the ball valve, are you running just the return, or sprayer, or is the water going thru both at the same time? Thanks
