We have closed our pool the last two years on our own. The first year went well and we opened without a problem. Last year we did everything the same but had a very cold winter. When we opened I noticed that the skimmer had developed a crack. I have not been lowering the water level because of the auto cover. Now I am questioning if the water level should be down below the skimmer. Any feedback on that subject??
Also, any ideas about how to fix the skimmer short of replacing it??
