Good afternoon everyone,
After pulling my hair out this morning, here I am. I am starting up my equipment.
I have backwashed the filter, rinsed, and set to filter. I primed the pump. Finally, water is coming from the returns nicely with the skimmers on and the main drain off.
My issue: The skimmers dont seem to be suctioning at all. How is that possible since the returns are flowing, and how do I fix it? Also, I have 2 separate switches for the main drain and the skimmer. Should both be on at the same time or just one at a time? when I turn on the main drain the filter loses pressure.
Im really afraid of screwing my system up, and very tempted to just call a pool guy even though I cant afford it!!
Please help.... thanks in advance.
ps - still waiting for the test kit.
