Skimmer pool is a pool with side skimmers around
If you can get the right skimmer you should not have too much of a problem However if you cant get a replacement you may be able to get out of it by getting a floating pool skimmer with inline leaf basket.
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. k
Hook your vacuum up to your skimmer and open the valve all the way to the skimmer.. that should give you enough suction. Then, get in the pool and get to work!
No as long as the skimmer section of the pool is properly supported like the rest of the pool
Drain the pool until the water level reaches two inches below the skimmer faceplate , remove the face plate using a screwdriver , remove the faceplate and skimmer , then replace the gasket and attach the skimmer and then the faceplate
The water will spill out through the skimmer, unless the skimmer it is blocked. Otherwise, it will spill over the top. It should not hurt the pool.
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.

ABSOLUTLY NOT! The first thing that will fail is the pool heater. Tabs in the skimmer could be extremely costly.
No your pool is considered a closed system all the water that you add goes only to the filtering system and back. If you put in too much water you will overflow the edges and make your skimmer less efficient. unless you have a floating pool skimmer then the pool will be able to change level without affecting the efficiency of the skimmer.
The pool skimmer is the part of the system that the water overflows into for the pump to pump it thru the filter and other accessories. There is usually a screen or mesh basket to catch large debris before it enters the pump. On above ground pools it will be found hanging on the outside of the pool near the top. In-ground pools can have the skimmer placed anywhere along the perimeter with a basket or screen accessible for cleaning.
When adding stabilizer to a pool you should not have a backwash valve open. Stabilizer should be added directly into the skimmer basket and you should open the skimmer all the way and close off the main drains for 24 hours.
If this is an above ground pool you could just pull the old skimmer out cut the rusted section of metal out hit it with some rust converter, replace the section where there is no metal with a new metal forget about the old skimmer setup and replace it with a "floating pool skimmer" they do a better job any way.
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.
If you have the regular set up that includes a skimmer, pump and filter then you don't have to waste any water. Get an lid-to-hose adapter, that fits over the skimmer basket at your pool supply store. Fill the hose with water and attach it to the lid. Place the lid inside the skimmer over the skimmer basket, then vacuum to your hearts content. Pool Masters
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?
They are usually attached with a hose to vac source & float on top.
