Hi all! I have a new 18' Radiant above ground pool. We have everything almost done (just have to do electrical).
Yesterday we cut the openings for the skimmer and return. Today there seems to be a leak at the skimmer. Could this be something to worry about or will it go away? If I have to pull the unit apart to find the problem, does the pool have to be empty? I'd hate to empty it if I don't have to but I also don't want to ruin my new liner. Can I use some sort of silicone?
Also, is the eyeball on the return used to blow water? There wasn't any instructions about this piece. Is it needed or is it something I can do without?
Thank you for any advice! Karen
