    Hayward skimmer plugs

    How do I unscrew square head skimmer PVC plugs?! Tough to get any torque. Have 2 skimmers and a main drain. There are 2 plugs per skimmer. Do I leave 1 plugged? I paid a guy to close. I want to open it myself! Thanks friends for any help. Cheers! Ready for pool season!

    I opened both up. I had to buy a sink tool to get a grip on the heads, then used a water shot shutoff T tool to twist them off. Pain in the arse! I'm up and running, did it myself, and the SLAM has begun!
