Yes, I believe it means your pump and filter are running correctly. You may want to adjust your jet so that the water discharge is just below the surface and circulating around the pool properly. My pool company told me to place the return jet at an angle facing away from the skimmer. It should be angled so that very little water movement can be noticed from the surface. The pool companies often set the showroom return jets in a way that is angled too high. They do this just for "show." If the return is set right, surface materials end up in the skimmer and bottom materials end up in one general spot in the center which is very easily vacuumed.

Why is there a spray of water in the pool for the divers?

Water is sprayed onto the pool surface, creating a ripple effect, so the diver can see the surface. Without it, the water takes on a glass-like appearance, and all you can see is the bottom of the pool. The diver needs to be able to spot the water surface in order to enter the water correctly in the vertical position.

How many gallons of water should a swimming pool lose daily?

That all depends on the size of the surface of the pool the amount of people going in and out of the pool etc. To see if a pool is leaking take a bucket of water out of the pool, mark the water level of the pool and the water level in the bucket. Then leave the pool and bucket alone for a day or two. if the water level in the pool has gone down more then the water level in the bucket then there is a leak or water is being removed in some way. If the levels are the same then the water lost is a result evaporation.

Should you trim the solar blanket that is a little bit larger than the pool?

Yes, trim it to size so that it lays flat on the surface of the pool. k It should not be larger than the pool (as you stated in your question). It needs to fit in the pool so that it floats. The entire cover should be making contact with the water.

Checking for leaks in a swimming pool?

If you want to know if your pool leaks. # Take a bucket of water from the pool. # mark the water level of the pool. # mark the water level in the bucket. # check to see how much the water has gone down after a couple of days in the pool and n the bucket. # If the level in the bucket is closer to the mark then the level in the pool there is water being lost some where. If there is no difference then there is no leak. The surface water on the bucket evaporates at the same rate as that on the pool, so the should stay the same.

How would you prevent a 20x40 concrete swimming pool with a tile finish from cracking after it has been drained and not refilled with water for awhile?

To prevent the pool surface from cracking you should keep the surface wet (with a sprinkler, for example). Allowing the pool to sit dry, in the sun, will result in surface cracking. Best NOT to let the pool sit empty for any longer than absolutely necessary.

Why is there a stream of water jet coming out of a diving pool?

This makes it easier to see the water surface. If there are few ripples on the surface then what you see from the board is the bottom of the pool rather than the water surface. This makes it harder to judge where you are in relation to the water. It also breaks the surface tension of the water down somewhat, which means it is less of a shock hitting the water. This isn't as important as being able to see the surface easily though.
