PB just opened our new construction pool last week (finished last winter; hasn't been used yet), and is coming tomorrow for our pool school...we're really pretty clueless until then.
Since opening our pool, though, the water doesn't seem to be circulating, either coming out of the inlets or being swept through the skimmers. There is water in the pump -- I can see it bubbling about in the glass window -- and the filter (sand) seems to be filtering something. But when I put my hand by the inlets I don't feel any stream of water, and the skimmers aren't "slurping" -- the same couple of leaves are at the top of the skimmer water level that were there last week. The pool has definitely cleared up, color and clarity wise, from the murky opening, but it still has the layer of scum/pollen on top that hasn't changed.
I should add that the line that feeds the Polaris cleaner is working. Also water level is holding steady; no signs of any leakage.
Does any of this make sense? Am I just expecting more "action" in the skimmers/inlets than is normal, or did the PB forget to open something up (or may he have intentionally not opened something up until we were "educated")? I guess I'll find out the answer tomorrow, but would just like input in the meantime...
