Hi everyone, can I first just say what a great forum this is, loads of good info and mods on here and everyone seems very hepfull.
Having searched the site I've seen quite a few through wall skimmers have been fitted to round pools and am wondering if anyone has fitted one to a rectangle one.
I have a 16' x 9' Ultra Frame pool running a 24" sand filter. Last year my .75hp pump failed and I replaced it with a 1hp model, this seems to run the filter better (at about 8psi when clean,the old one only ran 1-2psi when clean) but the over the side intex skimmer just cant cope and the kids keep knocking it up so the pump runs dry.
My concern is the bottom corner of the rectangular liner is fairly curved which puts a lot of vertical weight on the sides of the liner, presumably its designed like this to stop the sides falling outwards as opposed to the circular ones which the circular top holds the sides up and seem to have a 90 degree bottom corner so probably very little vertical weight on the sides.
Any help or thoughts gratefully recieved.
