Response to This float valve seats loosely at the bottom of my skimmer and this is a problem when the pool pump shuts off. Due to the inertia of the flowing water, for a second or 2 after the pump shuts off water continues to flow from the pipe from the main drain and forces the float valve off the bottom of the skimmer. Invariably it gets cocked at an angle when it settles back down and no longer functions correctly when the pool pump turns back on. Can you please provide me with a fix for this problem?
