I've searched TFP, YouTube, etc. trying to figure out how to remove the weir from my skimmer. The walls of my skimmer have bulged inward causing the weir to get stuck so I want to remove it, sand down the sides, and reinstall it. All the videos show newer models that have a spring type rod built into the weir which are easy to remove and replace. Unfortunately, my older model, a Baker Hydro skimmer, isn't so simple. I've read some threads talking about having to remove a hinge plate and some screws. I can't see any screws and the part in front of the weir (the hinge plate?) doesn't seem to come off (I tried prying it up with a screwdriver) and I don't want to break it. I've include pictures of the weir from the inside and the outside both up and down (four pictures). Can any one help me with this? Is this model just not designed to come off once it's in place? Worse case I may have to break it off and replace it with a newer replacement model like this: Weir, Assy. W/rod (51b1055) - INYOPools.com.
