I am a new pool owner and have a couple of questions regarding skimmers:
- How much water should I pull through the skimmers? Right now, I think the valve is set so more water pulls through the main drains. Since I am running my VSP at a lower speed for longer periods, I think that I may need to pull more from the skimmers to keep the surface clean.
I am assuming that I should always shut the pump off to clean the skimmer baskets. Is this correct?
Should the return fittings (eyeballs) be adjusted on the high side to create surface turbulance? Does this affect FC loss?
Thanks in advance for the help. This forum is great and I know that I will be spending a lot of time here.
Edited - Sorry, I was trying to make a numbered list but it didn't work.
