My only hang-up with adding a skimmer to the Intex was the need to drop the water level a bit for it to function. I just came across this DIY method. Any thoughts???

Um i see at least 2 problems w/ this - entrapment hazard & a clog waiting to happen.
Also it doesn’t look like he’s gaining much more water level than you would with a through the wall skimmer.
If you’re referring to the over the wall intex skimmer - those can be adjusted to achieve the water level u desire.
