    Water Levels

    I had the pool skimmer replaced last fall and haven’t run the Kreepy Krauly since. I’m trying to balance the spa water level when I run the KK. Within 30 min the level is low and the pump is cavitating. Do I decrease the spa skimmer?

    Give us a little more info about what all is going on while the cleaner is running. While it certianly sounds like you should decrease the flow through the spa skimmer it's hard for us to decide what to do without knowing more about the plumbing arrangement.

    Attached are photos. Tell me what other info I can provide. Adjusting the skimmers doesn't seem to be as effective as adjusting the returns. The main issue is that when I operate the Kreepy Krauly it changes the water level. Is that common?
