Thread: Gaskets and face plates

    Gaskets and face plates

    Im in the process of putting in a new liner (16x32 sand bottom)

    Does everyone buy the gasket kits?

    I have 6 spots - around fiberglass stairs, two returns, skimmer, main drain and deep end light

    I have really only found a kit for the stairs, so im wondering what to do for the other spots, how to glue.... etc

    or maybe everyone just uses whats already attached?

    Re: Gaskets and face plates

    When I replace a liner I replace all the cork gaskets which are typically the skimmer, light, main drain, steps and returns are usually a black rubber. I don't typically replace those unless they are damaged. Just make sure to secure those gaskets in place so they don't shift out of place during the liner installation for example pool wall foam glue or duct tape
