Currently, my skimmer does not seem to be bringing in much at all, in regards to leaves, bugs, etc. Throughout the whole day, I may only accumulate 4-5 items in my basket, but there are always a bunch of small things still going around in the pool (sweat bees, small leaves for example). I don't have much around me in terms of trees, but it is always a pain to how much stuff is still floating around the pool. My return is located about 2-3 feet left of my skimmer, so I point my return opposite of the skimmer to where it points just below the surface of the water. I seem to get the "toilet bowl" effect around the edge of the pool, but it seems to die off a few feet from the skimmer, and everything just passes right on by...sometimes I'll stand right in front of the skimmer and push some of the debris into it because otherwise it will just keep on doing laps.
What can I look at to possibly remedy this problem? I have tried various jet positions but can't find a good spot for it. Thanks for your help in advance!
