First I've been having trouble with the skimmer basket floating completely out of the skimmer while pump is on. ( I have a sand filter) I read on here to put rocks in the skimmer to keep it from floating. All I had were some lava rocks and that didn't work. It took something very heavy to keep it down. Also nothing happens when the pump is turned on with skimmer attached. The water just flows through the hose and up from the bottom of the skimmer. It doesn't suck the debris into the skimmer at all. As a matter of fact I noticed that debris seems to move toward the return jet moreso with the skimmer disconnected.
Also my skimmer didn't come with a skimmer plate to place on top of skimmer for vacuuming. You have to run skimmer while vacuumjng unless you have an automatic vacuum. Can anyone tell me another way to vacuum? I'm kind of allergic to spending more money on this pool thing at this point. I've spent somewhere around $1000-$1200 on this already on pool + supplies.
