    New Skimmer Question

    We are completely renovating our pool and installed two new Pentair skimmers. They installed the tile and the base of skimmers intake opening is approximately 2-3" below the bottom of tile line. Basically, the tile is downsloped into the skimmer.

    My contractor said this is normal but I've never seen it like this in friends pools. Is this normal? Thank you

    Re: New Skimmer Question

    I just went out and looked and my tile border ends about an inch above the skimmer opening. The skinner throat is completely tiled, though.

    I doubt if yours will be noticeable when there's water in it because mine sure isn't. I've owned it six years and I couldn't recall.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
