    I have a intex round 24` x 52 `` deep pool. it did not come with a skimmer, is it safe to cut the liner and add one.

    Hi lhanddh and welcome to TFP!

    I did cut my Intex Frame pool liner for a skimmer and have pics, parts and DIY install.
    My posts start at the bottom of page one, and continue through the posting.
    Go here:

    The hard part is measure and think, measure some more, then get out the utility knife and sweat some more, then CUT!
    Wow, I thought, that was easy when I was done... but the suspense can be intense.

    P.S. The first pic's was the 1 1/2 through fittings, still running the overhang skimmer. (needed to drill holes in the fitting to lesson the suction for my 1 hp pump)
