    Need a new skimmer for an old Doughboy. HELP!

    My skimmer is completely cracked. It's an old doughboy pool and I am have NO luck finding a replacement one or one that's even close to fitting. Suggestions? Anyone?

    If you can find a larger one you can cut the wall out and make it fit.

    Our local doughboy dealer carries replacement skimmers, the oem brand is Skimline. Instead I bought a pair of hydotools wide mouth abg skimmers for $40. I cut the hole wider and drilled new holes without issue.
    When the only tool you have is a hammer everything starts looking like a nail.
