This is my first time getting my pool opened and running by myself, I have everything hooked up and it was pumping/running just fine... a half hour later I glance outside and the water level had drained to almost below my skimmer... leaving the pump to run with out a lot of water and the water pouring out of the skimmer hose connection... Grrrrrr... twice now.
Why won't the hose stay connected to the skimmer "down pipe"... I am afraid if I tighten the hose clamp any tighter it will just crack the white plastic piece coming off the skimmer... What should I do, I don't trust it at all now. Scared if I walk away it will fall off again and I will lose all the water again, burn out the pump and more or worse.
Any suggestions!? Am I forgetting something? Should I add a hook or support for the tubing/hose/pipe??
