These usually comprise of deck lids, vacuum plates, dress rings, skimmer baskets, and complete skimmer boxes! Every pool has all of these skimmers and associates fittings. They are required for general pool maintenance or the use of a suction pool cleaner. Commonly, the skimmer basket is what requires replacing as they capture the debris before it enters the filtration system.

When connecting a suction pool cleaner using the vacuum plate, there are other associates fittings that come with the cleaner to ensure a air tight fit.

Other fittings that are found within the pool are return jets, which are otherwise known as eyeballs. There are also suction fittings where solar pumps can draw water from around the pool. 

On the floor of the pool, there will be a main drain which has a hydrostatic valve to release any hydraulic (water) pressure under the pool, helping to avoid the pool popping out of the ground if ever emptied. The hydrostatic valve is prone to leaks due to any dirt or debris within the valve, which can cause water loss within the pool.
