    Painting skimmer and autofill lid?

    Hi ya'll,

    With the beating rays of the sun my skimmer and autofiller lids have taken on an ugly yellowish look. Can I spray paint them? If so, any method you guys recommend?

    Dipyourcar.com just get one of the wheel kits unless you want one of the other colors, the trick is very light coat first then 5 coats black, then at least 2 coats of color

    Did this yesterday to my tan pentair filter, the hard pipe was done last year and looks the same

    first light coat


    last coat



    and it does water great, this has been in the water for about 6 months and looks the same

    Thanks for the reply. Do I have to use the spray paint from that site or will Krylon work just as good?

    Are all skimmer lids the same size?

    sorry, it is not spray paint, it is a rubber spray, chemical resistant, uv safe..

    nope, you will have to measure yours
