Ok, I know there is a post already about two port skimmers but it does not address my problem. I have two skimmers and both have two ports. I also have a main drain which I have never been able to get to work. One of my skimmers has a gizmo that covers the two ports. It looks like a giant sausage cut in half lengthwise, with a port on top and a sliding cover to adjust the size of the port opening. Inside the sausage is a paddle to regulate the skimmer port usage. The gizmo screws into the skimmer bottom and it is used to regulate the amount of suction that goes to skimming vs the suction on the secondary hole, which diverts suction to the main drain (their are instructions on the sausage that confirm this).
My question is this. I need another of these sausage parts. Does anyone know what it is? Part description, number, manufacturer, or anything; so I can order one for the other skimmer. I believe this is the only way I am going to get the main drain to work. If you know the answer, can you text the information to my cell (203-217-2652)?
