    Adding Skimmer, 2 to 1 plumbing

    Just bought a skimmer for my above ground pool and dont' want to lose the other filter attachment. any ideas on how to plumb 2 pipes into 1? and would prefer not using PVC i like the ease and flexibility of the tubing.

    A lot of people convert the extra hole to a return fitting. Any reason you wouldn't want to make up a T fitting?

    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.
