We decided two years ago that the water loss from the pool was on the return side. 3,000G a day! So, we plugged the jets and ran a fire hose from the pump to the far end of the pool. Works great; looks horrible!
We want to run 2" PVC on the deck and T out some returns down into the pool to circulate water better. Does anyone have advice on how to step down the PVC in diameter to make the jets work the best? Do we T off with 2" and the step down to 1" into the pool? Or, should we go with 3/4" into the pool? We think it needs three jets - just like the inground lines were. And how far down into the water should the jets be?
