    gasket interfering with skimmer door

    I just realized that my skimmer gasket is squeezed out and it prevents the skimmer door from opening and closing the way it should. Would it be ok to take a knife and cut the gasket that is causing the problem?

    That should work. Is it a butterfly type gasket, or two seperate gaskets?

    Butterfly, I think.
