Helo I have 1 skimmer I would like to add 2 more. Has anyone done this? If so what would be the pipe
Reduction size? Could they come off the existing skimmer, that is connected to the external pump side. Thanks,

That's a hard question to answer. Without knowing flow rates size of pond size of existing pipe. can you add them sure will they work efficiently that's the unknown. adding one will probably work ok regardless of your set up but two maybe pushing it.one way to do it would be to tap into the suction pipe before it goes to the one skimmer and split if off to two pipes one taped off the other and install a ball valve to the first and second skimmer that way you can control the available flow/ suction.
