    Skimmer postion

    Install will be in less than 3 weeks , the PB will be installing the skimmer & 4 eyeball returns before transporting to my home. Since this is an assisted/DIY, they have not made a site visit so I'm not sure how they are going to figure on positioning. How important is the normal wind direction in my yard to get the most benefit from my ONE skimmer??? Does it have to be in the deep end or can it go toward the shallow end?
    Thanks for any input, I'm such a newbie!!
    Assisted install/DIY project 2012: 15,000 gallon ,15x34x6 Fiji by Viking fiberglass pools with Azure blue diamond finish, 1 1/2 hp dual speed pump, 30" Hayward Sand filter, inline tablet Chlorinator (at least until I decide on a SWG- this is ALL new to me)

    Re: Skimmer postion

    You want it in the spot where the prevailing wind blows toward.

    Is this a fiberglass pool?
