OK, I have an indoor pool and spa...so we are never going to deal with leaves and such.
Do I have to have a skimmer?
I have one, but honestly I view it as a freeze problem during the winter. Can I seal it up and just use the bottom return for circulation/filtering?
It also appears to have developed a minor leak, the outside of it has stayed wet the last 2 days with no rain. I have not noticed a perceptible drop in water level.
Remember my builder has abandoned us, so no help there.
