    Purchasing a home with a pool - Assess my equipment

    I've never owned a pool, so I'd love some feedback on the equipment I'll be getting to know soon. The pool is a 26,000 gallon IG with vinyl liner. The pool heater is non-functioning so that can be ignored.







    Thanks!

    In the photos you appear to have a single speed 1HP Hayward Superpump along with a Hayward Progrid DE filter, the Hayward 1 HP Superpump is about as industry standard basic pump as you can get, The Pro-Grid DE filter is also fairly standard as far as DE filters go, this is one of Haywards larger series of residential DE filters, and is a traditional DE filter unlike their Perflex series. Overall fairly basic, nothing fancy to it.

    The broken PVC conduits and the PVC-to-flexible hose transition is worrisome. Do you know where those pipes go an why there is use of flexible tubing?

    I too have concerns about the flex tubing, however without knowing soil conditions there related to freezing weather it is hard to say much about the appropriateness of the flex

    I do not know where any of the pipes go. I was only there for a short time for the home inspection. Any thoughts on what these two capped lines are for?

    It looks like they are just taped off! Does the pool have any other features like a spa, fountain, waterfall, or in floor cleaner?

    I don't think so. The current owners are going to open the pool for us so I guess we'll just see once it is open.
