I just had a brand new skimmer installed in my 1961 pool. When I was inspecting the tile job and the skimmer yesterday I noticed 3 hairline cracks in the housing... I can feel that its an actual crack. Is it normal to have a skimmer crack after installation? I haven't had a chance to talk to my pool guy about it yet? Overall it looks like a huge improvement over my old skimmer.. Which was basically an original 1961 pitted up concrete wall... that i had entirely puttied up with epoxy over the years to keep it from leaking.
I'd imagine a small coat of epoxy will seal it up nice.. and don't want to make a big deal about it with my pool guy if it's a normal thing for a plastic skimmer housing to crack upon installation?
I included a pic.. Overall I'm been pleased with the pool guys price and work so far... He's plastering the pool hopefully in the next couple days.. after tiling yesterday. Don't want to make him dig out and replace the $1600 skimmer job.. if it's not a big issue.
