I’m draining my in ground pool to decrease cya and ch. once it went below side skimmer, it sucker air and stopped draining. How can I turn off side skimmer? I’m not sure which valve does it. Thank you!!
If there are two holes at the bottom of the skimmer housing, you may be able to get a hose to connect the open one to the other (which probably has a cover on it). The second hole should run to the floor drain in the pool. The little hose will probably be cheaper than a submersible pump, although the pump may have other uses for you and be simpler to deploy.
