I finally figured out what has been floating on the surface of my water. I netted the pool surface and let everything dry on the net to see if I could figure out what the little bits of clear stuff were. Upon drying, it looks like a lot of small bug wings (yuck) as well as some tiny bug bodies. We are in Florida and don't have a screen enclosure so we knew bugs would be an issue. However, I'm wondering why these aren't being pulled into the skimmer? I'm currently running the pump from 10-6 and am using a hair net in the skimmer basket. I check the basket daily and don't seem to be getting much in there. Also, when I check the skimmer I often find the weir floating in it. It seems to come off frequently. I do have the returns (3) going in a circular motion and only change the direction when I run my Kreepy Krauly.
Is there something else I should be checking to see why my skimmer seems to be leaving so much floating stuff on the pool or is this just normal?
