I have no idea what kind of skimmer I have, so if you recognize it, please let me know.
My skimmer has a black plug which I am assuming is for the main drain. On my suction line I can only choose between pool and spa. There are no other suction valves.
I removed the black plug and placed it over the other hole (skimmer suction hole) which starved the pump.
I had read other threads about a diverter that looks like a twinkie or a spaceship. I dont have one of these.
I use a Kreepy Krawley that attaches to the skimmer.
Do I need the twinkie diverter spaceship thing?
When/Why would I need to suck from the main drain?
Do I leave the black plug in place or take it out?
