Skimmer plug

Postby semirg » Tue 07 Oct, 2008 14:27

I recently bought a house with a twenty plus year old pool/spa combo. The pool has a single main drain and single skimmer. It has a Jandy 3 way valve on the suction selectable between pool or spa. My question..I found that the skimmer has a plug installed in the port closest to the pool (the other port is open and flows to the pump). I thought that port was normally plumbed to the main drain. Why would this port be plugged and should I remove it?
