    Installing Hayward Dyna Skimmer-Need Help to Stop Leaks

    I installed my Hayward Dyna - Skimmer today but I have a couple of slow leaks on the outside of the Skimmer. Any help? If I use a silicone type of sealer do I have to drain the pool down again and start over?

    My guess is you used a standard size #2 philips screwdriver and tightened them as tight as you could get them and the bit started slipping out and the screws were sounding like they were about to crack the skimmer.

    Get a #3 philips screwdriver and tighten them one more time. There is a reason the engineers put the larger screws with the #3 philips head in them. The extra torque you get WILL finish setting the gasket

    Thanks Mac. I'll try that and see if it seals it better.
