Hi All: New Member / 1st Time Homeowner trying to fix my pool. I have a old pool with a built in cement skimmer. I had been losing a lot of water and jackhammered out the area around the skimmer and found a lot of wet dirt. I would like to replace but saw costs averaging $1200. I found skimmers for $70 but just looking for a little adivice or warnings. I have attached some pictures of the skimmer. Any help / advice would be greatly appreciated.
My current Project scope includes:
Digging out area around
Cut out piping Hook in new skimmer
Form around it with rebar pour concrete around and use the pool cement to patch in.
Questions I have are: Where do i set the skimmer? To the back of the current one?
I have noticed most skimmers have three lines running out but this looks like it only has two. Can I use it or do i need a special skimmer.
Thank you -
