Best Answer

Yes possibly

In reality, the skimmer will not cause a leak. What causes leaks are people who do not connect or glue the fittings to the skimmer properly. Or ground movement like earthquakes.

How to Fix skimmer leak in ground pool?

NO the leak is in the entrance to the skimmer, a grout line was broken when I had the pool replastered and the vibrations from the jackhammers did it. The plaster co. will not take responsibility for this. You have to actually determine that the skimmer is in fact leaking. Repair kits are available on the market just for this situation. However, the leak has to be at the very bottom or near bottom of the skimmer. Have you had a pressure test on the system?


How do you repair a leak at the skimmer?

Why do I have extremely high acid demand on gunite pool with leaks in plaster?

LEAKS! That is the key word. As you refill the pool you dilute the chemistry levels which compounds the demand for acid. Call a professional leak detection service to find the leak and have it repaired. It will only get worse. A constant leak behind the walls of the pool or at the skimmer can enlarge to a monster of a hole underground. Ken

In ground pool when filled up and pump running water is leaking somewhere but will stop after it is under the skimmer could someone please tell what might be wrong?

If there is a sunken area in the bottom of a vinyl liner pool does this mean there is a leak?

Are you lossing a lot of water? Do you use any type pool cleaner that attached into the skimmer that bounces on the pool floor? If you do and the base is poolcrete is being better down.. and THAT could cause a hole... You may or may not have a leak but the sunken area is caused by the collapse of the sand or ground under that area of the pool allowing the liner to fill in the hole created by that collapse.

Can you run the pool without the skimmer just using the main drain for circulation if you think you have a leak in the underground pipe from the skimmer to the pump?

Sure you can. You'll need to use a net to clean the junk off the top often so it doesn't sink and cause stains or clog up the main drain.You can however it would be a good Idea to repair or replace the existing skimmer with a different method of skimming say a suction side floating skimmer as there are many materials that float to the top of a swimming pool that may be hazardous to health RB
