    Find yourself some weldon, its a solvent that bonds acrylic. I think that #16 is the thicker stuff.

    What kind of skimmer is it? What model? Where'd ya get it?

    I know a couple online places to get standard replacement parts and some odd replacement parts for pumps, skimmers etc... Might be able to find you a new cup.

    How bad is the crack? Super glue isn't exactly the most "water tight" of adhesives

    RC...these places you speak of...LFS's or websites?
