Above Ground Pool Skimmer Installation

Always refer to the specific instructions provided with your swimming pool skimmer for more detailed information.

The below process is a general overview of above ground skimmer installation and may not apply to all skimmers. Refer to your make/model's instruction manual for more details.

  1. The pool should be 1/2 to 3/4 full of water before installing the skimmer. 
  2. Use a small screwdriver or one of the skimmer screws to poke through one of the screw holes near the top of the pool wall. 
  3. Put a screw through the faceplate and from the inside of the pool push it through the screw hole. 
  4. Hold the skimmer box on the outside of the pool and with a larger screwdriver attach the screw to the skimmer box. Repeat this step until all screws are in.
  5. Cut out the opening inside the faceplate.
