    Pollen, little bugs, etc on the surface of water ...

    Hello All,
    i'm all about q's this am.
    we have 2 mains and 2 skimmers.....
    right now i have all 4 active. is it a fair hypothesis that closing the mains for a while would make the skimmers more powerful and remove more of the surface debris?
    typically, do people keey all open and periodically adjust or keep skimmers open/mains closed?
    thanks!

    When the pump is on, I prefer to open my skimmers only and close the main. I get the best skimming action that way.
