Thread: Water over skimmer line

    Water over skimmer line

    Just had some water delivered today and because I told them I suspected a leak, they filled above the skimmer so I would have more water while it leaked away.

    I know it can't "skim" like this, but any problems running the pump in the mean time with the water so high?

    No problem running the pump. You may even get a little skimming action, depending on how strong the pull is.
