Hello, I've got a 1970's gunite pool that we are replacing the decking around (pool tile and coping were replaced earlier and are good). I want to replace the skimmer as well. Any insight into the best method to do this? I've busted the concrete decking out, and quite a bit of fill, and can get to the main part of the skimmer itself, but, I'm not sure how far I want to go chipping away at the back side of the pool. So, how DO you remove the skimmer? Can you remove it without removing thye coping??? Would a sane man attempt to do this himself?
thanks for your input.
