I just replaced my entire 18' ABG and I have attached the new wide mouth skimmer according to very sparse instructions. *Unfortunately i keep getting very slow drips from beneath the skimmer. *(Why they do not make the skimmer curved to follow the contour of the pool astounds me). *
Anyway, *the gasket is the serpentine double sided type that straddles the wall. *I tried tightening the corners first then the remaining screws. *I tightened as much as i could without overdoing it (and even backed off on some screws which helped in limited cases). *Like i said i am down to slow drips but nothing seems to get the perfect seal.
Is there anything i can use to coat the gasket/liner/screws/etc that will holdup long term? *Or is there some trick to getting a perfect seal.
