Skimmer suction / valve problem

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me with my valve settings? I think my kids messed with them.

In the picture attached, if I set my 2 skimmers and main drain valves as shown, I get very strong suction to my vacuum but nothing to my skimmers. The skimmer/main drain valves will only turn from 10 o clock to 2 o lock. If I set the skimmers/main drain to 10 o clock, I get very weak suction in my skimmers (slightly more than nothing) but nothing at all in my vacuum. 

I am running the pool pump on high, I recently cleaned the filters, skimmer and pump buckets, and my pressure is perfect and pump running fine. Are my valves set wrong in the picture, or are there any valve combinations I can try? Many thanks in advance!
