Hey all! Newbie question I thought I'd ask here before/instead of contacting my pool installer tomorrow. Short story, we had some fire ants try to build under our pavers, and after killing and spraying the deck, some of the bodies made their way into the pool -- and now they're lining up along the water's edge. The skimmer has taken some of them, but I'd like to just vacuum them out.
One of the techs that did the install told me about dropping the hose under the water, making sure to connect the non-swivel edge to the skimmer port -- but he said something about putting the system in maintenance mode or adjusting something on the pumps/valves or something. I didn't catch that, and we haven't scheduled our walkthrough yet.
In the mean time, anyone know what I need to do so I don't screw something up? I'd have to be in pool mode for the skimmer port to work, right?
Here are pics of all my equipment in case that will help...
Thanks in advance!
