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.

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.

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.

The diver needs to be able to spot the water surface in order to enter the water correctly in the vertical position.
