Using poly-fill in the skimmers to remove iron. Should it float or sink? I repurposed poly out of a specialty pillow and it is packed into the basket but it floats the whole basket. I put tile to weigh it down. Is this normal?

When I did it the water suction seated the basket anyway.. You could put a weight in the basket .. just make sure you don't drop it in your skimmer suction hole. I used to use a rock, but I made sure it was bigger than the hole.
