And... oops. The first instruction in the manual doesn't work. I'm supposed to put the intake part through the pool lining, and it's WAY too big to fit through the opening there, and clearly not intended for use on this pool.
Am I screwed? I've read at least 20 posts about adapting Intex to this and that, and I'm still unsure what I should do here. I haven't picked up on all the lingo yet. Is a "skimmer" just the little plastic filter thing that connects at the intake to the pool?
Any help greatly appreciated!
