I have 2 surface skimmers and one is clogged with acorns/leaves I think.
When I close the other 2 lines (one is in bottom drain) a little water spurts into the pump basket.
I made a garden hose threaded pvc adaptor to pump it from the skimmer end but no relief.
I don't think drain snakes would help as the fittings are probably 90 degrees - this is the farthest skimmer on the opposite side of the pool.
Has anyone used a cobra drain cleaner (hose attachment that swells to seal) from the pump end of a line?
