Hi everybody, I recently bought a hud house with an IG pool. I had to replace the liner and did saturday, everything went well and now its time to start filtering. I noticed that the pump , sand filtere, and skimmer had has signs that it had been winterized Plugs were out of the pump and filter and the skimmer had a gizmo in it. My problem I think lies in the skimmer. The skimmer has to pipes one had the gizmo and the other looks llike it has a plug( something like a T- Handle tool would be needed to remove it).
After removing the gizmo i noticed i wasnt getting any water sucked down the drain. then i stuck a fish tape down the drain and it gets stopped within a foot from the top. What is going on. Im an electrian and use a fish tape alot it feels like the pipe has a dead end on it like a cap i dont know. maybe i its the other pipe i need. All i know is i need your guyes help!!
