I have looked around but can't find a good answer so I will post my own question and hope it is not to dumb. We have recently replaced both the pump motor and polaris pump motor and now the water moving into the skimmer is very slow-it seems the water is being pulled into the pump by the drain instead-you can tell this because the pump runs fine and holds its prime and few leaves that have been picked up by the polaris move over to the drain like they are being pulled there. My hubby thinks I am crazy-but there should be suction to the skimmer correct? There is almost none. You can literally put your hand in there and not feel a thing. I have read about the main drain diverter but need to know where that is located so I can check that.
Any help is appreciated.
