I got a fireproof ( eg: shuts off when any problems are detected) surge protector for now, I'll have to probably get a better skimmer down the road, I couldnt pass up this one when I found it, for only about $30 used.
I wonder what causes it?
I'll certainly keep an eye on it. I think somehow something got blocked.. I try to clean it regularly, but from the way it acted it seemed like soemthing got stuck somewhere.
Thanks for the info!
