    Extra Wide pool Skimmer

    I have a Wil-Bar Morada Option IV pool. It has a wider than normal skimmer opening. I originally purchased a standard Hayward wide mouth and its way to small.

    In ID if I measured right is some 12 Inches x 5.5In

    Anyway I can't seem to find anything. The pool is from 2007.

    Any suggestions on where to look or what to measure becasue its bigger that normal

    Call Inyopools.com or Sunplay.com

    Both have been very helpful in finding those odd, hard to find pool items.

    Good luck!

    Turns out nobody can seem to identify this stupid thing. iD is 12in outside is 16. The back attaches to the pool wall. So there is like two sets of screws to attach the outside to the pool wall.

    i have never seems anything like this, any ideas

    What is the part number on the skimmer lid?

    Do you have pictures?

    I have a few pictures iwth a tape measure for size. The lid is a replacement as the previous owner appears to have Frankenstein parts instead of a real replacement, So no i have no part numbers to go off of

    You might want to contact Wilbar directly. They should be able to help.

    There should be a part number stamped somewhere on the skimmer or faceplate.

    So it turns out nobody can identify this, no replacement can be found, but I did find this metal plate that can be used to replace rusty sidewall that will allow me to change from their crazy size to normal

    Pool Wall Repair Products - Fair Oaks Products

    thought I'd share with everyone in case others have this problem or have a rusty skimmer or return

    thanks everyone so happy I found this forum I will be back when it's time to condition the water
