So hereís a problem that Iíve been able to bypass for several years now, but itís still bugging me. If anyone has any ideas how to solve this problem (other than the obvious) wow, would I love to hear them!
My pool has 2 skimmers, one at each end of the pool. About 8 years ago, something (probably ground settling or a root) caused the PVC plumping underground at the skimmer to crack (this is the skimmer closest to the pump). We hired a leak detection specialist and he was able to verify that the crack is at the bottom of the skimmer. To stop the very excessive water loss, I plugged the inlet at the bottom of the skimmer with a threaded PVC plug. Though the pool has been running fine since then on a single skimmer, I sure would like to fix this problem to make the pool ďrightĒ again. So, other than hiring a construction crew to destroy my concrete decking to replace the skimmer & the plumbing, then re-pour, does anyone out there have any bright ideas how to solve this one? Iíve thought of trying to snake flex PVC through the existing channel out to the pump, but interfacing to the skimmer becomes a hard problem to solve. Iím all ears!
