Hi - I'm wondering if I properly vaccuum my pool in relations to my valves positions.
(Be kind - I'm new to this so I may not say proper terms, but, I'll try.....here we go....).
I have 3 valves on a pipe that are connected to the front of my pump and filter.
I know that: 1 controls the pool jets; 1 is to open/close the side drain in the pool (I hook my vaccuum hose to this); and the other, I'm honestly not sure but I think it controls the skimmer).
Well, when I vaccuum, I turn the center valve counterclockwise to "open" it.
The other two, I never do anything to them and they are always in the "open" position.
Am I doing this properly and I wonder if I closed the valve that controls the skimmer if my suction when vaccuuming would be greater?
Thanks for any input!
