    Hi guys ... so my skimmer decided to bomb out after the load shedding... I have a few questions

    1. Could it be fixed by possible buying a new propeller?
    Otherwise I was lucky to have another skimmer lying around but it is missing some parts ..

    1. Does anyone know where I can buy I gate valve for my skimmer?
    OR

    1. Can I just put a T-connection on and then cut out the angle of the next pipe for it to work.
    Thanks

    oh and if I buy another blue pipe and connect it to the other pump ... do I have this section setup correct or do I have to turn the air bubbly thing around?

    Try a pool shop, there is a nice one just off Malibongwe for the valve and other pieces, will look for the name.

    FAB on Oxford road in Randburg have a massive selection, I have always found they have a better selection than pool shops in various different sizes.
