Where will the skimmate go? and do you have supply and return ball valves or controls?
Where is your air coming from?
Last pic has nice skimmate on top!
Explain the hose .
I have 4 skimmers,and you peek my interest.
3 different brands and one is top of the line$$$.
Thanks! I'm really happy with how it's turned out so far.
I'm still working on the collection cup. I'm not sure how to make one so the skimmate will have a place to go. I thought about glueing a short pvc
pipe to the inner part of the pvc
reducer to make a cup but it wouldn't stay in place with pvc
glue...any idea if silicone will hold pvc
I have a ball value controlling the flow into the skimmer but just an exit hole to let the water out of the bottom.
As of right now I just use an air pump to drive this skimmer that's the hose going down the center
