I have a 24 ft round, with a deck built around it. I decided to replace the yellowed wide mouth skimmer this year with a new one---BIG mistake...
I got a new HP Pump, and a Heater, had the electrician out--all go.
NOW--i get the skimmer- clean everything-use the clear sealant-put the 18 screws in--still leaking around the bottom screws-puled it off, cleaned off the sealant, trried again and again--i get it to slow-but still leaking.
I live in an area-where pool installers do not want to come out for just a skimmer..
Can anyone help me-guide me?
By the way--I think i figured out the gasket--does it go like a picture frame in the actual steel hole cut out? then you screw the plastic front and back on?
OR-- do this gasket merely go on the front ONLY--inside the pool? OR--does it go on the rear
and no gasket touching the inside of pool? I googled --cant find A GOOD ANSWER--THANKS SO MUCH!
