    In ground skimmer replace suggestions

    Hello, I need to replace one of my skimmers in my concrete pool. I have read how to do it.....a pain I know. My question is how to determine exactly what I need. There seem to be a few options but not a lot of specs. Any thoughts?

    Would need pictures of the present skimmer to get an idea of what might help

    That is a fiberglass hybrid pool. Replace it with the same skimmer you have now. When you order it it will have everything you need in the box as far as attaching it to the wall. You will need some pipe fittings that you can get from a good hardware store

    That is the first time I have heard it called a fiberglass hybrid pool. I have only had the pool for 2 years. I am assuming that the walls are fiberglass and the bottom is gunite?
