    My Intex pool with new skimmer & fountain.

    This is my two year old intex with a new thru the wall skimmer. Plus I added a fountain on it also. The pluming was very easy to do with the couplings you can buy at Lowes or HD. Just waiting for the weather to warm up. It's been unusually cold for April and May hear in North Mississippi.

    Nice job I am going for the same thing on mine. What are you using for return? Is that the Hayward skimmer?Could I get a parts list from you? I know I am all about questions, the set up looks way sweet!

    Looks good!

    Now make another piece with a pool noodle clamped to it for Dad only to use as a water cannon.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I bought the skimmer off ebay for $23.00. It came from poolsupplies.com. Then go to Lowes or HD to get the 1 1/2 couplings in the electrical pvc isle. They are grey in color. Then all you need is some pvc and you fittings and you ready to go. It all ran me about $80. Those ball valves aren't cheap. The only stressful thing is cutting a large hole in a perfectly good pool. Good luck.

    Thanks, did the skimmer come with the eye ball type return?

    Yes, but I keep the intex return. The one that came with the skimmer was to small for the intex hole.
