Broke my permanent plug in my skimmer box


May 18, 2019
Hello opening my pool after a long hard winter in Michigan.. I started to try to undo one of my plugs in my skimmer box and mistakenly try to undo the permanent plug and now is broken with a big hole in the plug.... I know what you think rookie mistake and yes pure stupidity on my end. My question is if this needs to be repaired immediately? Can I try to open my pool and fix at a later time? Thanks for any direction you can provide... it’s an In ground pool

I am pretty sure you need to get it fixed.....sooner rather than later. It seems to me like your pool will leak down to below the skimmer until it is fixed
