How long is the throat of the vinyl Hayward skimmer? Is the cover changeable from the square lid to a round lid? Does this skimmer have just one hole on the bottom?
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.
There is a 3/8"(approx) hole between the two 2" threaded openings, what is this for?
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.
The optional float by pass valve, what is it and how much does it cost?
The optional float / by-pass valve provides a main-drain thru skimmer system plus an automatic safety by-pass for low water conditions. You may purchase the float valve assembly through this link http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352017468.htm
