Thread: Gluing Spa Skimmer Weir Gate

    Gluing Spa Skimmer Weir Gate

    I've got an Island spa where the skimmer weir gate is glued in place against the acrylic spa. Naturally, the original glue let loose and I must re-glue the weir gate back in place. Anyone have success doing this with a specific type of glue? I was thinking of trying Silicone II...

    Thanks

    plast-aid bonds very well to acrylic and pvc. it's also tint-able with a few drops of acrylic paint

    Thanks Kevin!

    I tried Silicone II today, but looks like the weir already has come loose in one place. I'll get some Plast-Aid and slap it on during my next water change.

    plast-aid works underwater too.
