    install a surface skimmer and a suction vacuum to pump?

    i have 18 x 9 x 52 intex ultra frame rectangle pool. it does not have a skimmer just a suction and return on the side. I want to install a surface skimmer and a baracuda ranger suction vacuum but dont know how and dont know if the intex 1250 sand pump can handle both? Do i need to run 1 at a time?

    There are some good posts about installing a skimmer. However the pump & filter you have is going to have a hard time handling the vaccum.
