In terms of the silcone, silcone will crack in cold weather, it will proberly be alright for the first year but then you would proberly need to replace it.
Hmmmm. Are you sure that's true of silicone that's rated for outdoor use?
Are you maybe to give me some pics of the problem areas, just so i can get my head around it a little better.
Sorry, I don't have a camera. Most of my questions are resolved by replacing the skimmer, though. I'm still trying to work out the best way to replace the aluminum hardware on the waterfall with stainless steel. I'd have to drill fairly large holes to get rid of all of the aluminum inserts, and there is a place on each side where I won't have very good access to hold a nut, but after finding two more screws with the heads corroded away, I want to get rid of all the aluminum below the waterline.
