Here is pics of the homemade skimmer. The right pipe sucks in, and has a p trap to prevent air getting sucked in. The left pipe is set in such a way it makes the water rotate in a clockwise manner, bringing everything to the suction on the skimmer.
I should also note, this is a separate pump from the main one. So there is two of these pumps in the pool. The one that came with it, and the skimmer one, which is on the opposite side of the original.
