Most likely your skimmer has two holes being either for pumping from the bottom or the rear depending on how the plumbing is configured. Have a look at your pump with the vacuum hose plugged in. Is the basket got air trapped in the top? Unplug the hose does the air go away? Chances are if this is the case the seal in your pump needs replacing.
