Above Ground Skimmer Installation

  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.
  5. Repeat the step until all screws are in.
  6. Cut out the opening in the liner inside the faceplate.

Note: Do not cut any openings or holes in liner if you are not satisfied with how the liner fits.
