Hi everyone, I am new to this board and appreciate all of the information that is put together here. Very helpful!
In the past I used smaller Eazy-Set pools because my daughter was too short for the larger pools. This will be my first year with a larger AG pool - Intex 18'x48" Ultra Frame. I have a Hayward 1HP 16" Sand Filter and the Intex SWG.
I have read through all of the posts I could find regarding the through wall skimmer mod. It looks easy enough to do. I live in Chicago so I don't want to leave the Intex up through the winter. For those of you that have performed this mod, do you leave your pool up year round? If not how do you handle the through wall skimmer when you take the pool down? Do you disassemble it (I worry about the screw holes). Do you leave it attached?
I appreciate any insight you can give.
