Here is the best link provided to install skimmers. I'm going to use it when I install mine. Post #36

I leave my return hole open, which is lower than the skimmer so water would never get to the skimmer. Never thought about it though. Definitely something to avoid after seeing your picture.

Oh, Crud! He already put it back together with the new Aquadoor plate (rim?) :rolleyes: The water was about 6 inches below the skimmer. I wish he would LISTEN to me and research before he does things! He's awesome - the hardest worker I know - but he's like a bull in a china shop! (probably not the best analogy these days! :eek: But you get the point! ;)) Thank you so much for sharing your resources with me!
