Hi all, bear with me please because I'm an idiot when it comes to technical things like equipment I'm having a couple issues, one is with the floor cleaners.
The lid to the basket for the cleaners pops off, it's happened 3 times. I don't know whether or not this last one has burned out the motor. I shut it down this morning. Has anyone heard of this happening? I've got a call to the PB for them to put a work order (our pool is only 3 mos. old)
The other thing brought to my attention by our maintenance guy (I'm doing the chemistry but he comes by to vacuum, clean filters, etc.) He says he's only seen one other pool besides ours in the 14 years he's done this (the other pool built by same co.) where the skimmer does not flow through to the filter. And the skimmer is only suctioning when the in-floor system is on. He said it makes vacuuming more of a challenge (he uses some kind of catch-all on the end of the hose) because it doesn't go directly to the filter. The result of the way our system is set up is that eventually the stuff in the skimmer winds up back in the pool via the floor cleaner. The one advantage supposedly is that there is more pressure to the floor cleaners. Possibly this is what's causing the lid to blow?
He said the other pool owner had PB re-do this. I wanted to get feedback to see whether or not this is something I should consider. Thank you for any guidance, I hope I've explained this correctly.
Here are pics but I don't know if it shows what I'm talking about (besides the lid, obviously)
