We found that one of our two skimmers does not clear our coping.
Note the coping is over the top of the skimmer hole by almost 3 inches. There is a 3 inch clearance between the top of the skimmer shell and the bottom of the coping. Our coping is 2 inches thick.
We can cut the coping (round) to match the basket.
We can jackhammer out the skimmer, replace skimmer setting it back. For reasons I don't want to go into this will not be an option.
Is it possible to angle cut the back underside of the coping to allow for basket clearance?
This is the other skimmer, what is expected.
This is the blocked skimmer. The ruler edge is fairly flush to the skimmer end under the coping, leaves about 3 inch overage.
This is another view of the blocked skimmer.
