    A section in the ISPSC in the Storable Onground Pools chaper has this:

    704.9.3 Location and venting. Skimmers shall be
    equipped with a vent that serves as a vacuum break.

    I don't think I ever saw this. Can someone show me an example of this?

    Skimmer vents in two ways.
    1) Vent hole in lid
    2) The waterline should be between 1/3 and 1/2 of the skimmers opening

    Yes, I would think the hole in the skimmer cover is what they are talking about.
