I'm new to the forum and fairly new to pool ownership. We live in Kansas City, and pools are not too common here. We put in our pool in 2003, and after firing the builder, my hubby finished it. It is an inground gunite pool with waterfall, 24'x37' at the widest and approx 7' deep at the drain with 2 skimmers. It has a centurion 1 1/2 hp pump, triton II filter, pentair chlorine feeder and polaris cleaner that I run 24/7. After weeks reading so many posts here, I've got questions:
Are you not supposed to run the equipment 24/7?
How do I get the fine debris from the top of the water? - too small to catch it all with a pole type skimmer net. Is that what the skimmer socks are for? I do clean the skimmers and filter basket regularly as well as back wash when needed. Just hoping for some tips on that tiny debris.
Thanks for all the help thus far!
