Ok. So I vacuumed this morning for the first time. I thought I had picked up the big items off of the pool floor, which I can't see. I was wrong. The vacuum picked up a rock and a small pine cone which was caught in the second basket by the pump. It must have clogged one of the pipes too, because our pressure has dropped.
My husband is off to get a snake to clear the pipes, but he had a question about the two holes that come up to the skimmer. One has suction and the other doesn't. Is that the way it is supposed to be, or are both supposed to have suction? Thanks!
