    Thanks! That was the one thing keeping me from pulling the trigger on a through-wall skimmer.

    It may be later on this summer, as I plan to at least partially hard plumb the pool. Yes, pic will be posted throughout the process.

    I'm getting ready to put one on and am also going about 1" above the seam. Just don't want to loose the water level. Good luck with yours!

    Found this post from 2010. Thought it may be helpful. It's not a wide mouth skimmer but it mounted in a spot where it may be easier to tighten the screws.
