After a ton of trips to the hardware store I finally starting piecing together things alittle earlier than planned ,.. Although it looks like a straight forward and easy little plumbing job it wasn't ,..too many precise measurements and cuts.,,, anyways ,I had things flowing via the way it was before and she worked great and it ...but today I had to put the skimmer into its little barrel ,cross my fingers and hoped that I measured and configured everything correctly and turn on the valve to reroute the water into the skimmer barrel, Yes yes yes !!! It worked as planned !!! Even after shutting off the power everything flowed as expected .
I got to tidy up things now and pretty up the area but the raw footage might give you an idea ,...Click image for larger version

It wasn't the easiest thing to squeeze under there and redo things but it worked out good .... I still gotta clean up things but overall it'll be a cleaner and more versatile little build
