Go and get a floating pool skimmer there is practically no work involved in doing it this way Have a look at the link below IMPROVED ANSWER: The floating skimmer above still requires a regular skimmer. I found this from poolsaboveground.com: "The safest way to cut the holes needed for the skimmer box and return line is to build the pool entirely and start filling it. Allow the pool to fill about half way up in order to set the liner in place(the weight of the water pushes the liner to the wall and in its permanant placement). At this point your pool is completely finished except for cutting the holes for and installing the skimmer and return. Put on some shorts and get in the pool. Meet your helper(did I mention you need a helper) at the precut metal wall openings. Your helper is outside the pool facing the openings. First take the return fitting apart. There are just two peices to the return. Press the return (with the threads facing out) firmly against the precut wall hole from the inside. Doing this will push the uncut liner slightly though the hole making it easier for your helper to cut the outline. Continue to apply pressure with the return as the helper cuts the circle. When he is finished cutting, push the return completely through so your helper can screw the plastic nut onto the threading. Tighten firmly and its done. Now for the skimmer. The skimmer also comes in two peices- a face plate and the box. The face-plate afixes to the wall on the inside while the box hangs on the outside of the pool. The skimmer connects thru the wall using several screws and your pool's wall is precut for them. Line up the skimmer plate against the precut wall opening on the inside of the pool just like you did with the return. Now, take one of the screws and poke it through the plate, liner, and wall hole. Have your helper line up the skimmer box on the outside of the pool and fasten the screw you poked through to the skimmer box. Repeat this until all of the screws are in place and tighten. Your skimmer is now in place and the only thing left to do is cut the liner around the inside of the skimmer plate to make an opening. This process is harder to explain than it is to actually do. Just remember- when in doubt- cut small."

That depends on the type of skimmer in ground or above ground and from what material it is made, The water is leaking between gaskets

Attempting to obtain step by step diagrams connecting an above ground pool to a sand filter.
To install the water return fitting above the ground pool, you have to switch off the source. After this you can then install the water.
They are usually attached with a hose to vac source & float on top.
You install it underground...
If you can get the right skimmer you should not have too much of a problem However if you cant get a replacement you may be able to get out of it by getting a floating pool skimmer with inline leaf basket.
Disassemble the pool, grade the site, install pool
Replacing a damaged pool skimmer can be a difficult and expensive undertaking. a way to avoid the work involved would be to install a floating pool skimmer this would mean you have nothing to worry about but a hose connection and possibly an inline leaf canister. Check out the Australian Dragonfly pulse surface cleaner also available in the USA.
The water will spill out through the skimmer, unless the skimmer it is blocked. Otherwise, it will spill over the top. It should not hurt the pool.
