    Hayward In-wall above ground pool skimmer

    have my pump on a timer. Inflow is via this skimmer. Problem is that whoever pump turns off, the skimmer basket floats up and when pump restarts, it remains in an awkward position as shown. Pool debris them bypasses skimmer basket to pump.
    Is my Hayward skimmer not working? I presume the basket should look in place to avoid this issue.

    Intex 15X48 metal frame - 4400 gallons - 8 years old!
    Intex SWG / Pump (sanitation) / Hayward pump (sand filter & heater)
    Hayward skimmer / Hayward Propane Heater 100,000 BTU / Hayward S144T Sand Filter
