So I have been waiting a week to hear back from the place where I bought my pool.
It seems that the skimmer opening is cut too high on the wall and they are trying to figure out why.
As it is right now, the face plate for the skimmer would sit over top of the bead track.
Does anyone know if they make a smaller bead track? The top of the skimmer opening to the bottom of the bead track is only 5/8". The top of the skimmer opening to the top of the pool wall is 2 5/8".
Before I put the liner in I installed the butterfly gasket for the skimmer and had to put the top part of it between the bead track and the wall. They have suggested cutting the face plate, but I don't think this is the right answer.
I just drained the foot of water I had in the pool to adjust the liner since the floor shifted so I have an opportunity now to do something if I need to.
I just hope someone has a good answer on this one.
