Thinking about installing the skimmer, but what do you guys do for storage? Last year I rolled up the liner as best as I could and thinking I would maybe have to remove this before storing? If you remove do you do anything to proct the liner etc where you cut the hole?

Ohhh good question. I was thinking the same for mine.
(I’ve noticed I got a habit of thinking the same things just before you post!! Some weird telepathic link across the big pond)

I would leave the pool up. I live in Ohio and have left my Intex pool up for 9 years now. Just lower the water level below the inlet/ outlet and winterize. If you do wish to take your pool down every year, you must remove the skimmer.

I would leave it up, if possible.
