Should Skimmer Basket Float? (newbie here...)
OK, we're 2 months into new pool ownership...the newbie questions should be coming fast and plenty!
My skimmer basket "floats" when the skimmer is not on. I know the suction keeps it in place when it's on, but should it stay in it's place when the skimmer is not on? We only have one skimmer, and it doesn't seem to do a great job...it's an uncaged pool, but there's a lot of surface stuff I have to "scoop" that I thought the skimmer would get.
Also, is there a recommended water level? (Like how far up the water-line tile?) We have an auto-fill that seems to run a LOT...should it be mid-tile, or is it a personal preference?
BTW...hubby was the contractor on the build, so 'check with your PB' won't help me...LOL
You guys were great with my previous dirt problem...
