My pool has three settings..One- filter threw skimmer, two-filters threw key drain, or three-filters threw both at the very same time..I don"t recognize what your typical by reversing it with a hose. I tried pitting the hose under it, but it does no fit, and also I think the pipeline curves..You speak there need to be a fitting I could buy the fits both mine hose, and to what part does the various other peice hook onto?I tried utilizing a plunger. Nothing!!There is water being sucked down, but I guess not enough, since when I turn it come SKIMMER only, It greatly pumps the end air..I need HELP!!I wonder if a pipeline snake would certainly work? Then i would have to hire soomeone...Anyone recognize what rather I deserve to do??Thanks so MUCH!

Well I actually did go to the plumbers store, ns bought the plumbers test plug. I did what everyone has actually told me to do. Ns am obtaining a many of small stuff, favor bugs and little leaves, ect. Coming up the skimmer pipe- So the tells me there must be miscellaneous pretty big blocking the from walking past. I m sorry is yes, really bad, due to the fact that I don"t desire to invest the money to have someone take it 5 minutes and unclog it for $300..When I turn the pump on, ns stick my hand down, and also it could nearly suck my hand down, so it appears to it is in sucking great. But when i turn only the skimmer on, the water in the pump starts come lower, and starts to make breathing sounds. Ns stick mine hand down, and it still could suck my hand down it, yet for some reason, i guess that"s no enough..I am going to store trying, due to the fact that I simply don"t want to be paying a pool person...Again, if anyone knows exactly how I can get this unclogged, i am begging, PLEASE help
