    Help with Finding the Best Pool Cover

    Pool covers are by design meant to rest on the pool water for support. During the swim season with lots of splash out and evaporation you will need to keep a certain water level for when there's lots of rain water on the top of the cover it can stress the cover sides that are in the tracks by...

    Crack in upper body of IG skimmer

    I'm thinking like what Jimmy said. It may have the concrete but as the picture clearly demonstrates it wasn't in the initial pour so the weight of the concrete surrounding the skimmer and not being tied to the wall ,will let it slip or sink independent of the pool structure.

    They sell 2 strengths in lowes and I get the 34.5 one. Whichever you use make sure to adjust the poolmath app otherwise you can have a real mess on your hands.

    Diferent Circupool Models output?

    Rates, Since you have the infloor system I recommend using a submersible pump on the first or second step and run the pump without a hose or even better with a somewhat reduced adapter on the output aiming it to the center of the pool.

    Turning on heater to help with cold temps

    As it has been said running the heater below 68° is just shortening its life for no benefit at all. When the temps get that low keep the water circulating and you'll be just fine.
