Forum Title: Just noticed gizmo (gizzmo?) popped off / floating in skimmer. Should I be concerned?
Still a moderately new inground pool owner, so I'm not sure if this is a dumb question. But after some wide swings in the weather (70 on monday, 30 yesterday) I noticed that the gizzmo had popped out / pushed the skimmer cover up. I had a guy close the pool for me last fall and he seemed pretty good (i know he used antifreeze, blew the lines, capped the other drains in the pool, and that this was a new gizzmo). But while I wait for him to call me back, I'm wondering if there's anything I should be worried about. Should I be scrambling to somehow get the water out of the skimmer, and put the gizzmo back in? Or feel pretty confident that the antifreeze will tend to things? Or freak out something fierce? Thanks for any insight you can pass along.

If you real worried, you could cut a pool noodle to the depth of the skimmer and put it in there, and place something heavy on the skimmer lid so it don't push up.
