First, we do not close our pool in the winter, we keep the pump, and waterfall running during freezing temperatures etc.
Second, the pool has been running perfectly fine until today! Hubby has took several dives into the pool, it's been around 70-72, has now dropped to 66 because of colder weather and because we added fresh water!
Third, today, we cleaned out skimmer's, backwashed etc....and we noticed that the lower end skimmer is not sucking any water in....we snaked a waterhose down there, and after an initial obstruction we got some of it lose and there is a slight change but not enough....!
Note: we've had really bad pollen this year and all the other **** that falls of tree's (we are surrounded by hardwoods very close to the pool)....some of the stuff that falls of the pool is very small (small particles) but we are pretty dilligent about empting skimmer's and pump filer, backwashing and manual skimming....!
Has anyone ever had these problems, and if so what should we do!
