    what is this?

    What is that little hole/access port (see picture in post #3 below) ? Mine has a screw off top with a gasket that has turned to dust and the hole is filled with dirty water. The hole is about 1 ft in the concrete from the edge of the pool, directly above my pool vaccum port and pool light niche.

    I have no idea about the quota...we're still learning about this new site too! If you post a question over in "forum issues" it'll get answered.

    The third picture in that thread is the diverter valve in the skimmer that is below the basket in the second post...probably not what you mean. The "other thing" is probably a setup for an auto filler. We have one, but it looks like a toilet float valve, and has a line going out to the pool. I hope that helps...

    Ok, I've got a picture, see below. I do have an auto-filler that is about 5 feet from the port in the picture (with float valve, etc.)

    That looks like a umbrella holder to me. Ours have the same cover

    Haha, really?! Never crossed my mind. Also maybe a volleyball net (see below link)? I should maybe check for another one across the pool...
