This is my first post. I am a VERY new pool owner. We just purchased a house with a pool and I have been reading, learning and soaking up anything I can on this forum. Great topics. Anyway....
It seems the clips that are attached to the skimmer for the Weir Door are not broken but they are very worn. The door won't stay hinged for long and floats into the skimmer. The actual door is fine, it is the fault of the tabs/clips that are attached to the skimmer itself.
Short of installing a new skimmer at an incredible expense and mess, is there some sort of retrofit door that will work for me? I have seen ONLY ONE company sell spring loaded Weir Doors as a fix. Does anyone have any experience with these? Any other suggestions for me at all?
The Skimmer is an Equator brand. It does NOT have holes on the sides of the skimmer. The door was held on by 2 clips on the bottom which allows the door to swing freely. These clips are worn and therefore the door does not stay hinged.
Thank you for any input.
