Replaced pump and filter today, so some of the equipment is not ancient anymore.
The skimmer basket and weir are missing. The skimmer cover is in place and says its a Hayward SP1082. I've found 2 different basket types online. 1looks like a normal basket, the other has an opening for a pipe in the bottom. Looking at the skimmer, I can see where I probably need the one with the hole so that the basket will seat below the water line, as I think the normal one won't sit low enough. Can anyone confirm?
Also, does the vac hose just go straight into this hole then, or do I still need a vac plate? There isn't anything in the pool house but the hose and vac head, both of which were antique and replaced today. Very frustrating to get one thing replaced or fixed, only to find something missing in the next step that stops progress again
Also realized that there's a Dolphin Diagnostics robotic cleaner, but the power supply is missing. Debating if I want to spend $200 on a power supply, without even knowing if the cleaner itself works. One thing after another!
