    Skimmer ID Help

    I need some help finding parts for my skimmer. Pool Tech skimmer didn't google....

    It's a 9" round skimmer with 2 ports in the bottom. The weir door is also missing. 7 1/2" x 5 1/2" is what the opening measures and it says pool tech. They left a round basket that says B-152. Also should there be some kind of valve in the bottom of the skimmer assembly as well?

    Ignore the algae. I am going to SLAM the pool once all of the parts are here...

    When I Googled it- it came up with INYO first and they've often found TFP'ers the part they needed:

    Skimmer Parts - INYOPools.com

    see if something there is what you need?

    Is Pool Tech a brand of skimmer or just a face plate? I am having trouble finding what model it could be...

    I'm not sure? But there are replacement skimmer parts out there that folks use all the time..... Call Inyopools.com or Sunplay.com

    Both shops have always been very good and helpful finding that elusive pool part.

    Skimmer ID Help

    Ok. I am almost ready to start the slam. I was running my pump today and noticed lack of pressure coming out of the jets after about a half hour. I swept and stared vacuuming. Can I have stirred up so much **** to have plugged the main? Or even the DE filter??

    Re: Skimmer ID Help

    Your pool is seriously loaded with algae. DE filters are soooooooo good at catching schmutz that in your case they're gonna clog up quickly. Hence you need to be available to clean them out frequently. That's the only downside on DE filters that I know of.

    Bringing this back to life. I assume the square skimmer housing requires one of those round baskets I've seen with a square adaptor plate? I'm just going to make one myself if that's the case.

    Re: Skimmer ID Help

    I was able to track down the correct cover and square skimmer basket for the skimmer. I do need bolts for the cover though. The cover part number is SPX1075C1 and the bolt part number is SPX1084Z9. I can't find the thread pitch and bolt lenght, would anyone have any idea or place to check? They look like stainless flat head screw. Is hayward a metric or standard bolt company? Any help is appreciated.
