My pool has two skimmers, each one has two openings. On one of the skimmers, the front opening is sealed. On the other skimmer, the Front opening goes to the main drains in the pool, both back openinings in both skimmers go back to pump (isolated lines).
Ok, my pool came with a Diverter(Item on left in picture). I was told to leave it in the skimmer in case the water level drops below the skimmer level, the skimmer will pull from the Main Drains. However, that is the ONLY place the main drains are connected, thus, I get no water movement in the middle of the pool (location of drains) as long as there is water coming into the weir gate of the skimmer.
So I ordered an equalizer so I can adjust how much water gets pulled from the skimmer vs the main drains, the problem is, as you can see, it's the wrong size. I've searched and searched and I can't find any equalizer that fits the dimension of my skimmer. My diverter (item on the left) has SP1070FB, the Skimmer cover plate has SP1070 on it.
As you can see in the pics, where the two holes are at the bottom, there's no "insert" or anything, there's no gap for a rubber o-ring that these equalizers come from, and you can see there is an ":eye" indentation at the bottom that I haven't seen in other skimmers?
I thought maybe that outer ring on my diverter was removable, so, using my Bench Vice and hammers, went to town. Learned that larger ring is firmly attached as one unit. I'm terribly vexed at this point trying to find the right parts here. Hoping for a life line...
