We have a new pool and I have some questions regarding the skimmer. It doesn't do a very good job of sucking bugs, pollen or leaves into the basket and there seems to be a film on top of the water when I open the cover in the morning to test the water.
We have a dedicated suction line and I'm using a Zodiac MX-8 cleaner. Due to the location of our equipment pad and our neighbor's bedroom window, I run our pump from 10PM to 6AM at 2000 RPM for filtration. I then run the pump from 8AM to 11AM at 3250 RPM for the MX-8. I set up the main drain and cleaner valves so that the MX-8 had the correct pressure for optimal cleaning. The skimmer valve was set by my PB. The MX-8 stays in the pool during the filtration. Do I need to adjust the skimmer valve to give me more suction and if so, by how much?
