    Arrow Questions and clarification installing Hayward through the wall skimmer

    I ordered a Hayward through the wall skimmer as I cannot stand the over the wall Intex surface skimmer.
    I understand how to cut the hole and everything. My confusion comes as to how to hook it up. Do I just hook it directly to my pump and just ignore the strainer outlet that is hooked to my pump now? Or do I have to figure out a way to T the stainer outlet to the skimmer and then to the pump? We hare not hard plumed. I know I will have to get a ball valve to block water from coming out strainer outlet if we eliminate its use. I have watched videos as well as read through threads on here.
    Thanks and grateful for any input.

    I think either way is fine. If you tee then you don't have to worry quite as much about maintaining minimum water level to feed water in the skimmer.
