    Skimmer Weir Missing - How Can I Identify Skimmer Make and Model

    Just purchased a new (for me) house. I noticed that the something did not seem right about the way the skimmer was working, and discovered the weir was missing. I can see two pins sticking out where it was attached. I looked for a brand name, but could not find one. What's the best way to identify the make and model, so I can order a new weir?

    Thanks!

    Usually on the underside of the skimmer cover their will be the brand name and perhaps a part number for the skimmer cover. If you post pictures of the skimmer, someone here will have a good chance at identifying it.

    Unfortunately, no brand name found anywhere. Here are some pictures. The middle photo shows two attaching pins, and then above probably a stop.

    Did you look on the underside of that skimmer cover?

    I looked there, and, unfortunately, there was no writing.

    Dang it! Maybe if you call Sunplay at 877-865-2493 you can give them the measurement and pics and they can help out.
