Fast question about Weir doors I was hoping to get some help on - should the wier door be able to pivot forward (toward the pool) in addition to backwards (towards the skimmer)? Put another way, should a weir door have a 90 degree range of motion or a 180 degree range of motion?
Just wondering because I put new weir doors in our pool (we just bought the house and there weren't any there when we got it). One of them has gotten stuck this week forward (so at perhaps a 45 degree angle towards the pool), causing the skimmer water to run low and air to be sucked in. I'm just trying to figure out how I should fix that - I could either shave the door to give it a full 180 degree range of motion, or I could put some sort of stops on the door to prevent it from traveling past 90 degrees (from horizontal) and getting stuck.
Thanks for any thoughts.
