Just last week, my family & I just purchased a 20 year old forclosed home with an inground pool. No one knew any history about the pool - other than the pump & filter, (and most likely a natural gas heater) system is completely missing. It's a 34'x16' liner pool with currently a nasty swamp full of algae and frogs.
I am not worried about installing a heater system for forseeable future, but I've already got my hands on a Hayward SP2610X152S pump and I am still trying to get a 24" Sand Filter asap. My problem is, I don't understand the piping schematic on my pool. I have been thinking about calling the local pool outfit, but I am hoping that I might find more sound professional advice here at TFP.
I've got what appears to be three separate flex conduits of 230V. I've got a capped off natural gas line, and 1.5" & 3/4" PVC piping - with sand residue inside of one of the 1.5" pipes. I understand that the 3/4" piping would have been for the heater system, but it doesn't seem to make much sense. My friend thinks that the drain side would be coming off of the 3-way valve - but after doing some online research, I believe the drain is coming off the piping on the left side.
