    Skimmer weir door replacement

    Hello

    I just noticed after 3 years with the pool that came with my house that the skimmer has no weir door but has two pins (not holes) to mount one (itís been that way since I moved in).

    I anywhere I can get a replacement?

    Skimmer opening measurements: 8 ľ wide by 6 ľ high.


    Thanks

    Can you identify the manufacturer? Halogen is a good source. Amazon also carries a number of parts.

    Take the lid off the skimmer and look at the underside of the lid to see if there is a Manufacturer name and/or part number. Then Google to find the PN of the weir.

    INYO also has a broad range of parts:

    As for manufacturer, some have crossover in terms of sizing and interchangeability, for example, my older pool has Jacuzzi skimmers but I just replaced the lids with Hayward parts which fit like a glove.

    I was missing a door on my last pool and the generic one on amazon with spring loaded pins worked great.

    Re: Skimmer weir door replacement

    Help!

    This wreck of a property came with Sta-Rite pump and filter.
    The skimmer is a weird little thing - two holes on the bottom - one to the pump and the other to the (single) floor drain.

    There are, of course, no markings that I've found. The skimmer trim ring is broken (concrete not level) and the weir has neither holes nor pins for a hinge.

    What I'm hoping:
    Where the door should be, there is a single SS screw in the center of the bottom flange.
    A quick scan of skimmer parts makes me suspect it is a Starite Swimquip U3 Skimmer, installed cheaply without the extension.

    The opening is gunnite with tile well into the opening (where the sliding extension should be). Looking at various sites, it seems the Pentair version of the U3 is not at all like what I've got.

    TL;DR Version:
    Can someone point me to the right source based on the frame with a single screw at the bottom?

    Are there universal doors which can be attached to a 1/2" frame around the mouth? I haven't yet measured the opening or the frame.

    This is the site which makes me think U3: Starite Swimquip U3 Skimmer Parts On Halogen Supply Co., Inc..

    As always, thanks!

    The one I mentioned in the thread link above is universal and there is a link in that thread to a youtube video

    Re: Skimmer weir door replacement

    The part number for the OEM Weir door for your U3 skimmer is:

    http://www.amazon.com/Pentair-08650-...ilpage_o02_s00

    This Weir consists of the door and a hinge. The hinge is attached to the skimmer using one screw in the middle of the hinge (the screw you described in your post). The hinge rests on a couple of hooks so after you remove the screw you have to lift the hinge straight up to clear the hooks. I ordered one of these to replace the missing door in my U3 skimmer, but because of my bad back I could not install this door. I could not hold the door and at the same time try and start the little screw. So what I did was send the door back and then purchase a universal Weir door that all you have to do is hold the door in place and then pull out two pins that release spring powered pins that hold the door in the skimmer.

    The universal door I purchased was this one:

    http://www.amazon.com/Devil-B8550-Sk...ilpage_o01_s00

    The universal door works great and was easy for me to install. Hope this information helps you.

    Re: Skimmer weir door replacement

    Thanks!

    Would it be possible to leave the existing hinge part in and then clip the door to the existing part?

    Nevermind - just ordered the part - will find out if it can be clipped onto the hinge...

    Re: Skimmer weir door replacement

    The door will separate from the hinge if the hinge in flexed enough to release it. If you try to snap the door onto the old hinge while the hinge is attached to the skimmer you will likely break one of the tabs. Just undo the the screw and remove the old hinge. Hopefully you are more flexible than I am and can install the new door with hinge attached.
