This is a customer's pool. 20x40 liner with 2 skimmers. Hayward sand filter. Hayward 2 HP Super Pump. Hayward SWG. Originally I saw the cloud coming from the return farthest from the pump/filter as well as the farthest skimmer, but none coming from the closer return or skimmer. Pool had been untouched for a year or so. SWG says generating but again, FC is 0. Might the cloud be due to the cell needing cleaned? Can't see that being the problem with the cloud now coming mostly from the skimmer.

I don't understand how a "cloud" (or anything else) could be coming FROM the skimmer. Skimmers suck in water and nothing should ever come out.
