    Finally... Now a question about my skimmer cover

    Thanks. It came with the screws so I've just been using them. But now that the work is done back there, there won't be so much traffic so I think I'll just take them out. As far as a skimmer sock goes, what's the advantage of that? Won't my DE filter trap the smallest particles anyway?
