I am a long time lurker in my first season of owning a pool. To date, with the advice of the forums, maintenance has been a snap. Recently, my FC levels dropped below normal, and we now have green tinted, cloudy water. We are currently working on clearing the water (we have already brushed the sides and added enough liquid chlorine to raise the FC to shock levels). We would like to use a skimmer sock to help filter the water and, hopefully, clear it a bit quicker than filtering alone.
Our skimmer has a floating weir insert (plastic cylinder that bobs up and down). We would like to use a skimmer sock to catch some of the finer debris, but I can't figure out how to use the two at the same time. How do folks do this? Do I need to just remove the floating weir while using the skimmer sock?
Any advice is appreciated. In the meantime, once this storm passes, I will post our levels for additional input.
