    Sealant for the skimmer

    Hi all,

    Happy summer!!!

    I'd like to ask for recommendations for product to seal the surrounding of the skimmer.
    There is some leakage around the skimmer area. I notice that water level drop to about 1-2cm above the bottom line of the skimmer and stay there. The leakage has happened before almost every summer. I have to spend $100+ to ask somebody to seal it for me every year. This year, I plan to buy some sealant to seal it myself.

    I am interested in these two products: one is about $6, the other is $60. May I know if anyone has any experience on these two products or any recommendations for other products?

    J-B Weld 8277 WaterWeld Underwater Epoxy Putty about $6
    Underwater magic $60

    BTW, both my husband and I have learned a lot while we maintain our pool. This year, we know how to replace the motor and how to patch the mortar on the stone

    Thanks for any suggestions!
