A great unexpected summer of swimming, but the ol' watering hole is tired. Really tired.
I'm planning on refurbing the puppy this winter or spring, but right now my problem is there is a leak that will bring the water level below the skimmer and air gets into the system. I was thinking of cutting a small section (10 feet?) of vacuum hose and plugging that into the skimmer inlet so it's always submerged in water.
Does this seem like a sound idea, or am I totally out of the pond on this?
I guess my sig doesn't mention where I am. Funny, I thought this place read my mind? Anyway, I"m in Northern California. Not too concerned of freezing weather, although we might get one or two nights below freezing. This is an In Ground pool.
