I'm going to try and repair my collapsed skimmer lines, I'm breaking the concrete tomorrow
I would just like some information before hand, at some point the flexible pipe turns into PVC. I know that attached to bottom of the skimmers is the flex pipe, but at the pump I have PVC coming out of the ground. I'm wondering if I just need to find were the flex ends and replace that portion with the polyethylene pool and spa tubing I can get at home depot (I'm hoping that is the correct type of pipe to use).
I mean if I have to replace it all I will, but just replacing the flex pipe will make it so l don't have to break a lot of concrete.
Also, if I do have to replace it all is the PVC portion just regular PVC or do pools use a different type of PVC?
Thanks for any advise or suggestions ...
