    Skimmer Trimmer Plate

    In our Pentair Bermuda Skimmers we have trimmer plates.
    When should these be used? right now it is set so it is not blocking either of the holes on the bottom.
    Thanks again!!!

    Which are they? Hayward's or Pentair's? Bemuda skimmers are Pentair. Lets see a pic of the inside.

    Hi Scott,
    My fault...they are Pentair Bermudas.
    Also, noticed while I was underwater that the weir gate make a bit of a creaking noise when they go up and down...any solve for this too?
    thanks!

    Are both ports of the skimmer in use? Often, only one is used. If both are used, are they used to tie drains to them, equalizing ports, or to each other?

    I would only use the flap to cover the drain port when vacuuming.

    Not much to do about the squeaking though.
