I am hopefully about to start breaking ground next Tuesday. Design is final, except now I'm just a little concerned about skimmer placement. I have a weather station at my house that has collected data over the past year. Among other things, the wind direction shown in the bottom of the first photo seems to overwhelmingly be from the SE and NE throughout the year. It's hard to tell, but the wind speed on average is less than 5 mph for the entire year.
The second photo below shows my planned skimmer locations along with a North arrow. Skimmer #1 (bottom right) seems to be positioned ideally for SE winds. However, my concern is Skimmer #2 (top left) and the fact that it faces W/NW, which is a very small percentage of the time for the prevailing wind direction. Should I be concerned about the location of Skimmer #2 or not? Is there a better location I could move it to? Keep in mind that everywhere there are green rocks on the edge, those rocks go down into the water, so those locations are not an option for putting a skimmer.
Am I being to nit picky? Will all the debris basically find its way to the two skimmers regardless of wind direction? Note that I do have 6 returns, shown as R1, R2, etc. below. Thanks!
