To repair a leak near the filter return of an above ground pool, a marine patch should be used. Marine patches are available at home improvement stores like Menards and Home Depot.

Absolutely. Many people excacate and then place an above ground pool into the hole such that a foot or two stays above ground. Also make sure you either have clearance for your filter system or run the line into the ground and up to the filter as well.

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.

An above ground pool vinyl liner repair kit may work. You can get these locally at most hardware stores and even Wal-Mart.

about an inch below the TOP of the filter...there should be a line on your filter...

Just enough so that the skimmer is above the water and the pipes to the filter and filter can be drained.

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

Proper water chemistry instead of neglect. Long filter periods and a clean filter.

Specifically where is it leaking? At the gasket? Replace gasket.
