    building a deck around the skimmer

    we are building a deck around our agp and we are still trying to figure out the best way of going around the skimmer and still having easy access to it. If someone could give me some ideas or pictures it would be greatly appreciated!

    Can you add a removable panel,so the skimmer can be accessed from the top of the deck?The panel would only have to be big enough to allow the lid of the skimmer to be removed for cleaning.

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    A panel that lifts off would work or even put some flat hinges on it to flip open (although then you may be stepping on the hinges)

    Put the deck on the other side of the pool! Just a thought

    If I used a piano hinge, I'd do it this way ???? where Omega is the hinge and the part on the right swings up out of the way. That keeps the hot metal below bare feet!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
