Thread: Skimmer splash-out

  1. Back To Top    #1

    Skimmer splash-out

    I have my water level halfway even with the skimmer opening but still seem to see a good deal of splash-out of water through the hole in the cover and the sides of the lid.

    I am not at all concerned about water usage since I fill up with a spring next to my house with pump. I am however concerned about the water that puddles next to the pool wall and eventually finds its way down to the bottom rail and sand.

    Has anyone done anything to divert the splashing water away from the pool? I was thinking about some plexiglass maybe? Is there anything like mulch or sand that might absorb the splashed water and not let it puddle?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    did you just wrap the rubber around the skimmer or fasten it to anything?
