    Wide Mouth Skimmer OK on a 20' Intex?

    I have this skimmer on order. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002KMIK26/ref ... 25410_item Will it be ok on a 20' Intex, or should I get the standard sized one?

    Thanks for the help.

    IIRC many people have used that kit for their Intex.

    Good to hear. After ordering I was thinking I should have gone with the small one. Not really sure if the wide mouth is an advantage or not.

    Made a new hole for the wide mouth skimmer and capped off the original hole.

    Won't WalMart and everyone else have them for clearance sale next month and you can get a new one for the cost of the old liner?

    i don't know which pool you have.

    If its a steel wall AGP, never mind but I know my dealer told me $500 for my 21 round and I found it for half that.
