    Skimmer lid housing that doesn't have a visible ring around the outside?

    I want to get one of those nice looking decorative covers for my new skimmer thats being installed, but noticed that there will still be a visible white ring that shows. I can get the part in gray (see pic below), but would rather see if I could find something that does not have a visible ring. Any Ideas? The skimmer is a water way and is already partially set in concrete so it would have to be capable with that. I figure since there are so many brands that use the same side lid, there has to be some solution?



    here is what I would like it to look like (no ring around the outside)

    The skimmer rings also come in clear too if that helps?

    I think I am just going to get gray, and go with a gray cover.

    Yeah I have seen those. I was going to get the rock coping placed around the new skimmer cutout, but now that the plumbing is all being replaced I have to get an overlay anyways. Maybe I should just have concrete around the skimmer and get the pour a lid. then have it covered with the overlay hmmm
