You can buy a devise called a Jeanie Jet and it connects to your water hose. Take the lid off your pump and insert it into the front of the pump going back to the skimmer. You then turn on the water and it should blow out the line and unclog it. What comes out of that line will come out into the skimmer so watch for it.
There is a solution! A new invention that allows frogs to escape from dying in inground pools. It is called the Critter Skimmer, and it is a ramp that is attached to the skimmer cover that allows them to crawl out of the pool. It really works. All inground pools are designed to push everything into the skimmer, so the frogs will always find their way out. Just replace your existing skimmer cover with the critter skimmer and no more dead frogs! It's amazing. I haven't seen a dead frog in my pool since. go to www.critterskimmer.com
The skimmer is the healthiest method for removing water from a pool for filtration at all times
It would be easier to replace with a floating skimmer Check poolrite dragonfly
Depends on your setup. Do you have a working bottom drain and a side skimmer basket? I only have the side skimmer basket, so once the level goes below the skimmer the pump will run dry. I have to attach a vacuum line to my skimmer basket so that the vacuum head sits at the bottom of the pool then I can backwash as much water out as I want. You should note that I have read draining all the water from an inground pool will damage the pool as the walls and liner rely on the water pressure to keep shape.
try a shop vack drain the pond/pool down to the bottom of the front of the skimmer then turn the pump for 25 sec till you see the water drop in the line let it dry a bit then shop vack it
This can be tricky with several variables involved. How many skimmers? Are they independent lines? Any idea what clogged it? Toy? Acorns? Leaves? Concrete?

As skimmer boxes in in ground pools are built in this is usually a very difficult and possibly expensive operation and may well require the attention of a pool builder or repairer. However if the cost proves to be prohibitive you can replace the skimmer box with a suction side floating pool skimmer. these plug into the suction via a pool hose and take the place of the skimmer box they can be left on a short hose or a long one and be positioned or left to float freely in the pool. they are in fact a far better skimmer then the existing static skimmer box.
Skimmer pool is a pool with side skimmers around
It should not have water in it, especially if freezing weather is expected. Drain the pool to below skimmer line and drain the filter and filtration equipment.
