    How would you aim these returns?

    Top and right are just straight shooters. Bottom is eyeball currently facing right but not upwards or down. Pool is about 21000 Gallons I think. Sorry for my fun MS PAINT. I can replace all with eyeballs or whatever else. First year with pool.

    I would aim the lower one to the right and see how it goes. I would recommend a counterclockwise rotation anyway as the first thing to try. I think there is a chance that the upper left return could now debris past the skimmer if you went clockwise.

    What I personally would start with, just to see how it goes.... Clockwise, from the skimmer. 9:00, 10:00, 3:00. 2:00, 8:00.

    Save some empty plastic water or coke bottles with the caps or buy some ping pong balls and toss them in the pool this weekend and sit and watch with a beer. As long as nothing ends up stuck in a corner, it should skim.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
