    Intex 32x16x52 Through Wall Skimmer Question

    I have finally decided to upgrade the Intex sand filter and pump that came with our pool to a Heyward model. I will also be adding a through wall skimmer and PVC plumbing. I have researched and seen this successfully completed many times but there is one specific issue I have not been able to find an answer for. When installing the through wall skimmer, what should I do with the existing two skimmer holes in the wall? The current "skimmers" just poke through the grommet in the wall and a hose is clamped to them. Is there a way to plug these or is there an adaptor to create additional skimming? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I know I've read a bunch about this. You can start here: My 18x52 Intex Ultra Build - Mods: skimmer, inlets,outlets, return-PVC Diagrams/Video

    I know there are a bunch of threads in Above Ground Pools You'll need to hunt. Start with the sticky thread on top with links for Intex owners.

    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.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
