    Question lakepool145

    Hi! We've recently installed a 30' x 45' in ground salt water pool with overflow spa and two 24" sheer descents. It's beautiful except for one of the 24" sheer descents. It doesn't flow correctly and dumps a lot of water in the surrounding area. Our pool builder says its because of the water pressure and we just need to live with it. I think it's something else. Can anyone give some advice?
    Thanks a bunch,

    That kind of reply sounds like a contractor who already received their final payment. I hope they can do better than that for you. I don't have a specific remedy for your sheer decent, but did want to say welcome to TFP! Nice to have you with us.

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    I agree, sounds like the builder giving the run around.

    Post up some pictures.

    Welcome to TFP and congrats on the new pool!

    They should have installed a valve for each sheer descent so that you can adjust the water flow to it.

    Thank you everyone!! No we haven't made the final payment and there are separate valves for each descent and at full pressure and being the only one running it doesn't flow right.

    Well, I doubt it was designed to run that way

    Is there any problem when both are running?

    Re: lakepool145

    Yes, actually it flows the same regardless if it is on by itself or running with the other shear, bubblers and spa all at one time. It also dumps a lot of water which the other one doesn't do. The shears are designed to arc over a fire feature and into the pool. At corrosive as salt is, I'm sure we will be replacing the fire feature in no time. I will post some pictures as soon as I figure out how. LOL and thanks for replying.
