You could try using a plummers snake, or an electrial snake, put it down the pipe and go until you find the clog then twist and try forcing the snake forward, this may take many trys before you are sucessful, if you feel you have mouved the clog try running the pump to pull the clog free from the pipe and send it to the pumps skimmer collector.

What would cause the skimmer basket to lose suction?

A clog in the line. Another way to see if it's a clog is to put your control value to skimmer and then see if water is coming into pool from jet. If it is not being returned pool thru jet it is very definitely a clog in line. Next question should be how to get rid of a clog in line?AnswerI have found that low water level will cause the skimmer not to operate very well or at all. Air in the lines, maybe?? Could also be a bad pump seal, loose fittings in and out of the pump, loose or bad o-ring on the pump lid. Or maybe the timer just shut off. Bad motor?? Would have to see or trouble shoot system to give a quality answer.k

How to Fix skimmer leak in ground pool?

NO the leak is in the entrance to the skimmer, a grout line was broken when I had the pool replastered and the vibrations from the jackhammers did it. The plaster co. will not take responsibility for this. You have to actually determine that the skimmer is in fact leaking. Repair kits are available on the market just for this situation. However, the leak has to be at the very bottom or near bottom of the skimmer. Have you had a pressure test on the system?

How do you remove leaves that have clogged the plumbing of your gunite pool?

Vacuuming large debris through skimmer without using a leaf trap.A leaf trap has a bag inside for catching debris and is placed between the end of your pool vacuum hose and the skimmer. It keeps leaves from clogging your skimmer line when you vacuum.It's OK to not to use a leaf trap as long as you are vacuuming small things that can't clog the skimmer line, but never go without it when sucking out acorns, sticks, large quantities of leaves, etc. This can lead to a service call to unclog the skimmer line.

Sure you can.
