    Question How big is your skimmer?

    Greetings. Still working on preparing to set up our pool. I noticed today that the wide mouth skimmer had a couple of small cracks in it and thought I would look for a new one rather than try repairing the one I have. I did a few quick searches, but the measurements I am seeing doesn't match either what I have nor seem to fit the opening already cut into the pool wall.

    The pool wall opening is 14" X 7 3/8".

    The current skimmer, with no name on it, is 16 1/8" X 9 3/4" where it attaches to the pool wall. The basket part of the skimmer has an ID of 7".

    Anybody have one this size? Is mine bigger than yours?? Any thoughts on where to search for a replacement?

    Thanks, as always, for your help.

    What is the name/brand of your steel walled pool?

    I purchased it used, but the pool manual says Haugh's.
