Got our new pool completed last month, June 9, 2015. Started the planning and permit process in January. My old pool was built in the 60's and everything was manual. Had a timer to turn the pump on and off. Now this new one has all the latest auto stuff. Having a problem with my solar, there are air bubbles come out while the system is in the solar mode. The builder said that this was normal that the start up when it switches over to solar has to push out the air in the solar panels and that woulf take a few minutes. I have a little bubbles come out after hours of running the solar. I have tried running the pump a verious speeds and still cannot get rid of the bubbles.
I took off the vac valve and found it clogged with pvc shavings and put on a new air relief value that you use in yard irrigation and it worked, but still bubbles. I cleaned out the supplied vac valve, which was made out of brass and tightened up all the connections on the panels and hope that take care of it. The builder said that it is normal and that was before I sent them a picture with all the stuff in the valve. Is this situation normal.
