First post and hope siggie looks Okay!
I inherited this pool when I purchased the house 2 years ago. It's an above ground with the specs below. It's probably about 19 years old (as old as the house.)
After the initial load of information I had to get on what each part is and what it does, I now know the skimmer's door that switches from filtration to vacuuming is broken. I tried to get a replacement door, but I can't find it as it seems that the skimmer model is quite old. Please see picture attached. I am willing to replace the skimmer with a new one, but I was told I have to get the same skimmer (with the same thru-wall pattern so it would fit in the existing cut.) I was also told it's a Lomart skimmer, but I couldn't find one that looks like it.
Any idea what the skimmer model is? Where can I find parts or find a new one that I can install instead of this one?
I have other problems with my pool this season (broken pump strainer basket), short filteration cyecles (I'm planning on replacing the filter sand) but I hope I can manage those. However, this skimmer problem seems unsolvable.
Thanks a lot in advance.
