Hi everyone. I'm new to the in ground pool game and not sure if the skimmer opening should be have a lot of power suction for bringing in dead gnats, small black flies that are floating around the pool edges.
I noticed after heavy rain past couple of days a lot of gnats have been floating 5-6 inches outside of the skimmer opening. Hundreds of them, smaller than an ant size, just floating and not actually inside the skimmer opening. Is this normal or should the skimmer opening actually be sucking them inside?. I can clean them up from the pool with a pool net just wondering if this is pretty normal.
Also when vacuuming the bottom of the pool it does pick up the dirt so no issues there.
