Have Hayward P1084 skimmers and am having problem with the "weirs" (the little doors). (These were installed by a pool renovator who replaced my original Anthony Sylvan "round" skimmers as part of putting seamless concrete to the edge of the pool and replacing original coping; that led to tiles falling off and having A&S redoing tiles around pool. By best guess is for some reason the tile guy took the weirs out of the skimmers and didn't put back properly. That is just a guess).
The problem is both weirs are loose and end up floating in the skimmer or the pool. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get them back in place! On one skimmer, a pin on the skimmer is actually snapped off and the other weir the little "sleeve" that wraps around the pin is broken. The guy that opens my pool cannot figure how to get the doors in; at the local pool store I bought a new weir for the broken one and she said you somehow have to "maneuver them in to place". From what I can see the only way to connect them properly is from the outside and once you do, you cannot get the weir door inside the skimmer (there is a "peg" attached on top of the skimmer I assume that is designed to keep the door inside the skimmer; therefore I cannot get the door outside to go inside!?!). If I try to attach the weir door by going inside the skimmer and try to attach to the pins outside, you cannot connect them!
I apologize if stupid, but is there a way to do this that I cannot figure out? Or do I need to get whole new skimmers put in that have the weir doors in place?
