Hi people, the last two days when I go out to the pool, the basket in the skimmer has been flipped over on its side. Any ideas about what could cause that?

They float. I know mine does for sure. I put a rock in mine to keep it down. There is a small chance that you are getting some backflow from the filter and that's helping it float.

A suction side air leak is likely the cause. Pump running, do you see any air bubbles moving through your pump's clear lid? If so, that's it.

Thanks, I haven't noticed any leaks. There is a lot of leaves and junk falling right now so it may be filling the basket before I can empty it.
