      Skimmer conversion to 3 inch

      Has anybody shown details on converting a plastic pool/spa skimmer to 3 inch (or 4 inch) gravity flow?

      I watched birdman convert his and he just drills the bottom out with a hole saw and drill press. I don't have one of those so
      I did mine like the third example with a 6" to 4" fernco.

      Here's a different take on the conversion. Mine is a Sacramento Koi skimmer, and was already installed and encased in concrete. The bottom did not lend itself to an easy conversion, so my only option was to go through the side with a 3" uniseal.
