    Competition Skimmer Parts

    We bought a house last fall which already had an above ground pool. The skimmer has no name or model number anywhere on it, but I found an instruction sheet for it with other information left by the previous owners. The company name is Competition and from looking on the internet, I gather they were located in Quebec. They seem to be out of business now.

    I need a basket and vacuum plate for the skimmer. The basket is cracked but still functional. I dont have a vacuum plate. Any ideas where to look for replacement parts?

    Thanks,

    Russ

    Can you post photos of the parts and skimmer as a whole? Good possibility I'll recognize it and be able to help.

    Josh,

    Thanks for the response. I attached some pictures of the skimmer. I dont know if the basket is original or not. It looks like it had 4 legs, but 2 are broken off. It still works but leans in the skimmer. I dont have a vacuum plate for it either.

    Thanks,

    Russ

    Re: Competition Skimmer Parts

    I think I recognize it and I'm trying cross reference it.

    Let me know how if these measurements match up for basket:
    6-5/8" (top diameter) x 4-3/4" (bottom diameter) x 2-3/4" (height)
    The flat section on the sides should be about 2-1/2" in length and it would be about 6-1/8" from flat side to flat side?

    On mine the top diameter is 6 3/16", bottom diameter is 4 1/8", height is 2 3/4" without the legs. The flats measure about 1 3/4" and its 5 15/16" across the flats.

    I'm checking to see what we have in the warehouse. I'll let you know what I come up with. It may have been discontinued from what I recall but I think there may be a different replacement that fits.
