Read a lot of the posts on this topic but I am still confused.
I have a diverter that looks like the one in the photos in equipment section. Have two pipes in bottom of skimmer, both same diameter. One pulls water like the devil with the diverter and basket out, the other not a thing.
I have two main drains in my deep end. When pump is running I can feel no pull at all when I stand on them. I would think I should.
My water quality is good, other than i am getting a new VS pump and new filter soon as the pump is noisy and inefficient and the filters need replacing so for a few hundred more I am going to get a new cartridge filter system.
Also, do not understand how diverter works as it seems like when the disk is down it covers both pipes completely.
I am sure the answer is in here somewhere but I did do a search and 8 or so threads.
