    Ok I need some help, odd water loss??

    Not really, there is a slight drip from the area leading to the filter... but nothing that would allow this type of "dump" of water... Shy of filling it back up, i am at a loss... Like I said, last night before bed, fine.. then boom. I want to fix it before I fill up.. Only other thing I can...

    Placement/Location of through wall skimmer Intex Ultra Frame

    This is tough, A. its pretty close to a fence so the winds would not be a factor, or they "swirl" due to the fence, house, shed, etc B. new setup so I have no idea where things will accumulate..

Is this a huge issue, or are the blocks more important (ok NM...
