Hi from New England. After the winter we have had I was not surprised to find that my skimmer was broken (on my above ground 15x24 oval pool) and my water level down a little low. A fix I thought I could do myself. I didn't know what kind to buy so I thought it a good idea to take of the skimmer before I bought one to match up the holes etc. I ordered one on line that lined up with my old holes but needed a two more. I took it upon myself to drill a small hole in the proper place after lining up the plate etc. When I drilled the hole I caused a small tear just below where the gasket will be about an inch to an inch and a half. My dilema,1) should I fill the pool before I attempt to put in the new skimmer? 2) What is the most amazing patch you can think of to patch a vinyl liner on the wall below or around and under a skimmer gasket and face plate?
all the things I can't go back and do are done... I was beating myself up all night about starting this project and not being able to finish it~~ (single mom here no excuse I know.) I'm just trying to get this ready for our usual Sunday Fundays that are so limited here in Massachusetts.
thanks in advance reepool skimmer tear.jpg
