I bought our house from foreclosure last fall and the pool hadn't been used in a few years. It is an indoor inground pool.
I have a hole in the sidewall of my skimmer (see picture (if the upload worked)). I was told by a pool contractor that as a temp fix I could fill the small void behind the hole and use a 2 part epoxy to seal/fix the hole so that we could fill the pool and test equipment and lines. Does anyone have any recommendations on an epoxy that will work best for this? The pool is empty so I can do this fix in dry conditions.
Also, as you can see in the picture, there is a black ring in the skimmer. Any suggestions for the best cleaners/methods to get rid of this? I haven't tried anything yet.
