Thread: how to figure out which Swimquip S​ta-Rite skimmer I have?

    how to figure out which Swimquip S​ta-Rite skimmer I have?

    I'm trying to determine what skimmer type I have on the pool that came with my house. Removing the basket, I see 8560-87, which suggests to me it is part 8560-8, which fits on a Swimquip S​ta-Rite Pool Skimmer.

    I don't know which exact model I have. How would I determine this?

    I would like to find a vacuum plate to fit this skimmer, or some other way of measuring suction at the skimmer-side port.

    I think that you have a Sta-Rite U-3 Skimmer. Does the basket look like the one below?

    I think that the below skim-vac would work.

    I think that this one would also work.

    What is the diameter of your skimmer basket? I'm thinking that it is about 8.375" in diameter.

    Thanks James. I replaced several of the baskets when I moved in, which looked pretty much exactly like the ones in your picture. Attached are a few more pix with measurements. Is this unambiguously the U-3?

    I need to try to take a suction measurement at the skimmer, which will demand a plate with a threaded 1/4" fitting for my vacuum guage, or a plate with an integrated gauge. Or perhaps I could figure out some way to fit such a gauge to the end of a standard pool hose. Anyone know if there are such plates available for my skimmer or for a standard hose? I've googled a bunch and haven't found anything.

    I am pretty sure that it is the U-3 skimmer. What are you trying to figure out with regard to the suction? There are several options depending on what you are trying to do.
    Perhaps the below item will work for you.
