I'm going to guess my skimmer is leaking.
Water level has been stuck at the lip of the skimmer for a couple of days, and the water has remained at the same level in the pipes. I have the dreaded "black bottom skimmer". You can see an arrow pointing to a screw that was stripped. I've also circled my prominent balding forehead, lest it be confused for part of the skimmer.
I've seen a product that epoxies the entire bottom of the plate, and provides extensions for the pipes along with a shallower skimmer bucket to compensate for the longer pipes. Has anyone here tried it? Thoughts?
Or could I just squeeze my own tubes of A+B, get my own PVC, and get a smaller skimmer bucket? Their kit is about $160.
