    Paper gaskets for skimmers, really??

    worst case if it leaks, shock the pool, drain it below the skimmer 2 inches, caulk it up, let it dry for 24-48 hours, reopen the pool. Repeat next year if necessary.

    Paper gaskets for skimmers, really??

    Its like paper, like I had the vacuum going through the skimmer and it totally destroyed it taking the vacuum out. Had to pull the liner and redo it.
