Is this normal? This pump seems to be stronger than our last one. There were no markings on the old pump that indicated HP or anything so i'm not sure exactly how strong that one was. Since the new pump the skimmer flap(not sure if that's the right term?) gets sucked down and doesn't float at all. This seems to affect the ability to pull surface debris down into the basket.
Is it possible the buoyancy of the flap is just gone? Or is it possible that the pump it just too strong for our setup? The new pump is a Hayward and its 1.0HP 110volts. Just let me know if you need any more info to help.
