Please help No Weir installed

Postby yusuf » Tue 11 Nov, 2008 07:36

Hi, I have currently bought a house with a swimming pool, I have noticed that there is no weir installed in the swimming pool at all there is only a inflow pipe.

Can you please assist me in a workaround if the weir is not essential or if essential how would I go about installing one, I would prefer to not install a new one as that would mean that I will need to break part of my pool.

Please help.

You can use a universal weir that is cut to fit also some skimmers use a floating weir that sits inside the skimmer basket

Missing weir

Postby poolpro1 » Wed 12 Nov, 2008 20:33

Sounds like you are missing your skimmer. The weir is a door that fits inside the skimmer to control water flow. If you are missing your surface skimmer you may be able to install a wall suction type skimmer provided you have a suction fitting in the wall of the pool. Does your pool have a drain suction at the bottom of the deep end ? Please post more info on any inlets or outlets you have in the pool. Is your pool above ground,in ground ,concrete,fiberglass ?

If you are completely missing your skimmer and only have a suction inlet,then you might like to try something like a dragonfly,which is a floating skimmer and could be just plugged into the wall.
they are Australian ,but i believe someone in florida is distributing them.

You can purchase replacement weirs at most pool supply stores. They are very easy to install, you just need to measure how wide it is. Its probably about 8 inches wide and will install in less than 5 minutes. The cost is under $20 each.
