So the pool installer on my above ground pool said that Wanda's hose should go through the skimmer and then under the collection basket into the pipe. He also said I could leave it plugged in all the time and just remove her from the pool when we are swimming. When I looked at this myself, it seems that the collection basket would not sit correctly or collect anything if the hose was running through there. Then again, I guess it wouldn't matter since no water would go through the drain since Wanda would be plugged in there. Is that how most people set it up? The installer said we could take the hose over the top of the pool instead of through the skimmer itself, but I would still have the basket/unused skimmer problem.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts! Our pool is almost filled with water so we will be starting the pump for the first time tomorrow.
