    Need help getting the skimmer located properly

    The steel is in and I'm finishing up the plumbing on a gunite pool. Relative to the top of the rebar, how high and how far in are you supposed to position the skimmer? Also, what depth range do people usually set the spa jets at relative to the rebar?

    Thanks in advance!

    Our walls are 12" thick and we position the back of the skimmer throat (where the throat and the circular collar meet) inline with the back of the 12" thick concrete wall. Position jets according to where you want them in the spa, not according to rebar.
