Hi, Patrick. The throat is 8-1/2", the covers can be changed from round to square or vice versa only by purchasing and installing the Adjusting Collar. The skimmer has two suction ports.
Skimmer cracked and leaking water below intake level. How to I remove and replace the skimmer
Hi, Rachel. Removing and replacing an inground pool skimmer requires digging up your deck.
There is a 3/8"(approx) hole between the two 2" threaded openings, what is this for? thanks
One is the main drain for the skimmer and the other is for if you want to connect a suction side cleaner into the skimmer.
