New to swimming pools just bought a house with a pool and I have been trolling to figure out chemicals and such. My pump housing blew and I had a pool guy out to fix it as it was covered under the home warranty. I also had noticed the auto fill wasn't working it was all dirty in there like it had been off for some time. The garden hose was in the pool when we moved in too indicating the previous owner knew it was broken. I cleaned out the well with the float in it and I tried every valve around the house as well as the water valves with the pool guts. The pool guy couldn't find anything that worked either. The repair guy found that the distributer carousel thing for the floor pop ups was bad and replaced that. So now all the floor pop ups are working and pushing dirt toward the main drain and I'm happy the pool guy has gone home but I'm noticing it doesn't seem the main drain is sucking anything in and through my reading in here it seems there's supposed to be one of those flying saucer diverted flit valve things in my skimmer port and I find it in the box with the pool chemicals. Why isn't it in the skimmer so I start looking in there and that's when I see this it looks like a piece of flex tubing or something in the main drain port really clogged in there. I'm assuming this isn't supposed to be here. Help!!! I can't keep calling a pool guy back and long story short it's making me super frustrated cause in the housing contract the guy signed that to his knowledge there was nothing wrong with the pool or pool parts etc. I'm really frustrated here. Not that I expected everything to work but at least these super obvious problems they were aware of be disclosed.
