I am the new owner of a suction side cleaner(Hayward Navigator).
I had a tough time getting the cleaner to the appropriate suction pressure.
I have 3 returns - Main Drain, Skimmer, Vacuum Line.
Using the included suction gauge I shut off the main drain and had to open the skimmer valve about half way.
I used a lot of fine tuning of the skimmer valve to get to the correct suction.
I prefer to run the automatic vac only a few times a week(screened in pool).
My question is - should I leave the skimmer valve partially open at all times?
Once I open back up the skimmer how can I easily get it back to the correct suction?
The valves are Jandy grey valves, doesn't seem like I could easily mark it.
My other option is using the included regulator valve and closing the main drain and skimmer all the way.
Thank you in advance
