My skimmer is cracked and is slowly leaking. My pool is concrete in-ground about 15k gal. with concrete pool deck. I have been researching and contemplating on replacing this myself. Other than being lots of work it does not seem that difficult but I have a couple of questions after I get the old one out.
I am going to make sure that the replacement skimmer has the exact same size opening as the old one where the water intake opening butts up against the concrete opening. What I do not know and maybe someone can advise on is that when I install the new one what is needed when the to assure a good bond between the new skimmer and the existing concrete opening to prevent water leaking?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Currently the skimmer opening has waterline tile going right up to the plastic edge of the skimmer.
Thanks in advance.
