My pool is old, and doesn't have a formal skimmer. Instead, it's a cement area where the skimmer would be, with pipe to the filter at the bottom of the hole. I have a plastic skimmer ball which sits on top of the pipe,to stop leaves etc.
On top of this, pool level, a 10" x 15" cement block, 1" thick. Many years ago, I bought this block at a local pool store, but I find now, they are obsolete and no one carries them.
Any ideas where I can get one? And exactly what do I call it? I'm not getting anywhere searching via Google. Hope someone has an idea. thanks.
