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.
It depends on the type of skimmer you are looking for. If you are looking for a skimmer net then you can get these at pool shops and some department stores. If you need a static skimmer of the type that is usually built into a swimming pools side then a pool shop or a pool supply's wholesaler. If you need a suction side Floating skimmer that connects to the vacuum plate with a hose. Try www.dragonfly.biz. I recomend it because I invented it. There are also a number of venturi type pressure side skimmers but none of these has particularly impressed me.
Chubacas are the name of the floating gardens that the Aztecs built.
No, not usually.
The Aztecs built the floating gardens
A pool skimmer is generally built into the side of or around the top of a swimming pool in order to skim debris from the surface of the water. A pool filter is built into the plumbing in order to filter fine debris from the water itself.
here is how I did it - I built a box out of wood big enough to cover the skimmer area . I built mine out of scrap wood. I then covered the edges of the box with foam window seal to give it a good seal. Place the box over the skimmer area. When you start you will only lose the water inside the box and the water pressure will seal the area. Replace skimmer, remove box.

How do you clean out leaves? I use a polaris with a "fine" bag for bugs etc. and a coarse bag for leaves. There are times I have to put a leaf bag on a pole, instead of a skimmer or rake, and use that. I also have a hose attachment that hooks up to a skimmer but so far, the Polaris has cleaned the bottom quite well. There are disposable liners for built-in skimmers that are like coffee filters. RG What about just vacuuming the pool manually.
