As skimmer boxes in in ground pools are built in this is usually a very difficult and possibly expensive operation and may well require the attention of a pool builder or repairer. However if the cost proves to be prohibitive you can replace the skimmer box with a suction side floating pool skimmer. these plug into the suction via a pool hose and take the place of the skimmer box they can be left on a short hose or a long one and be positioned or left to float freely in the pool. they are in fact a far better skimmer then the existing static skimmer box.

Why is your salt water pool filter system not filtering?

I put water in the filter box and when I turn on the filter water is not circulating thru the chlorinator as if there is a blockage. I have cleaned both the areas and th skimmer basket and the basket to the filter are both clean. I have tried the waste cycle and the water is not escaping. Its very frustration as I generally use half a bucket to get it going and its now not going. Please help Regards Paul P


Why would your hands or feet have a tingly sensation in a salt water pool and not in chlorine pools?

Hmmm, not likely. Do you feel the tingling elsewhere? Sounds like stray voltage. How old is your pool and equipment? it is not the salt system. If it is not an electrical problem then it could be improper chemical balance and since you did not list pH or alkalinity readings I assume it is that. Adjust your chemistry and see if that was it. If not and the tingling continues stop using the pool until you can have the electrical system thoroughly checked. Do you have a pool light? Is it on? Do you have a GFCI for the light at a junction box or circuit breaker box? If not why not? You must have a GFCI installed to code!!!!!!!!!!!!

What is the minimum height for a pool light junction box?

This follows under the NEC. I have attached the code Article. Depending on the Voltage of the fixture as you can see. See related ROP (A) Junction Boxes A junction box connected to a conduit that extends directly to a forming shell or mounting bracket of a no-niche luminaire (fixture) shall meet the requirements of this section. See related UL(1) Construction The junction box shall be listed as a swimming pool junction box and shall comply with the following conditions: See related UL(1)Be equipped with threaded entries or hubs or a nonmetallic hub Changed From 2002•680.24(A)(1)(1) and (B)(1)(1): Revised to delete the text ``listed for the purpose'' associated with nonmetallic hubs.(2)Be comprised of copper, brass, suitable plastic, or other approved corrosion-resistant material(3)Be provided with electrical continuity between every connected metal conduit and the grounding terminals by means of copper, brass, or other approved corrosion-resistant metal that is integral with the box(2) Installation Where the luminaire (fixture) operates over 15 volts, the junction box location shall comply with (A)(2)(a) and (A)(2)(b).

My above ground pool skimmer is leaking how can I stop it without draining the water and sealing it?

here is how I did it - I built a box out of wood big enough to cover the skimmer area . I built mine out of scrap wood. I then covered the edges of the box with foam window seal to give it a good seal. Place the box over the skimmer area. When you start you will only lose the water inside the box and the water pressure will seal the area. Replace skimmer, remove box.

What is the scum gutter of an above ground pool 18' by 18'?

I may be wrong but I doubt there is a scum gutter on above ground pools. There may be what is called a skimmer and that is sort of a hollow box like object at one side of the pool - usually located closer to the pool equipment side of the pool. When the pool pump is running you will be able to see water entering the box or skimmer. The purpose of the skimmer is to catch bugs, leaves, etc and to get the water back to the pump. It is part of the circulation system.

How do you install a skimmer in an above ground pool?

Go and get a floating pool skimmer there is practically no work involved in doing it this way Have a look at the link below IMPROVED ANSWER: The floating skimmer above still requires a regular skimmer. I found this from poolsaboveground.com: "The safest way to cut the holes needed for the skimmer box and return line is to build the pool entirely and start filling it. Allow the pool to fill about half way up in order to set the liner in place(the weight of the water pushes the liner to the wall and in its permanant placement). At this point your pool is completely finished except for cutting the holes for and installing the skimmer and return. Put on some shorts and get in the pool. Meet your helper(did I mention you need a helper) at the precut metal wall openings. Your helper is outside the pool facing the openings. First take the return fitting apart. There are just two peices to the return. Press the return (with the threads facing out) firmly against the precut wall hole from the inside. Doing this will push the uncut liner slightly though the hole making it easier for your helper to cut the outline. Continue to apply pressure with the return as the helper cuts the circle. When he is finished cutting, push the return completely through so your helper can screw the plastic nut onto the threading. Tighten firmly and its done. Now for the skimmer. The skimmer also comes in two peices- a face plate and the box. The face-plate afixes to the wall on the inside while the box hangs on the outside of the pool. The skimmer connects thru the wall using several screws and your pool's wall is precut for them. Line up the skimmer plate against the precut wall opening on the inside of the pool just like you did with the return. Now, take one of the screws and poke it through the plate, liner, and wall hole. Have your helper line up the skimmer box on the outside of the pool and fasten the screw you poked through to the skimmer box. Repeat this until all of the screws are in place and tighten. Your skimmer is now in place and the only thing left to do is cut the liner around the inside of the skimmer plate to make an opening. This process is harder to explain than it is to actually do. Just remember- when in doubt- cut small."


I am building a swimming pool in Brisbane and the main drain has not been connected to the skimmer box is this normal?

Normally the way the plumbing on a pool works, You have theThe Skimmerbox all the water that comes from your pool to be filtered goes through the skimmebox. then you have the pipes that take the water to the skimmer box, sometimes water is also taken through a special opening in the spa if there is one attached.other plumbing that goes to the pool are the returns from the filter and possibly to and from the heater if there is one.last but not least at the very lowest part of the pool there is what is known as a hydrostatic valve. this is there to allow ground water that has built up under the pool to be released into the pool when it is empty. this stops the pool from coming up out of the ground.
