    Reach-in pool skimmer?

    I hope I have the name right... I am looking for a reach-in pool skimmer that has no visible lid on the coping or deck near the pool. I am working on designing a new pool that is semi-above ground. It is a gunite pool but 30 inches of it are above grade. We want a skimmer that will fit within a 14" thick pool shell wall without a lid. Hayward says they make one but only for above ground pools with low speed pumps. Does anyone know where I can find the skimmer without a lid? Thanks in advance for your help.
    Pool Size: 9,000 gallons
    Pool Type: In ground, plaster
    Filter: Pentair 4000 Series D.E. Filter
    Pump: 1 HP Pentair Whisperflo WFE-4
    Heater: Sta-Rite Max-E-Therm 200
    Salt System: ECO-matic ESC 36
    Pool Cover: CoverStar, motorized cover

    I may have resolved this question. A colleague directed me to the "Waterway Front Access Model 510-1500". It is a spa filter but I believe it can be used for a pool. I'll know more when I speak to the manufacturer tomorrow.
