Not new to pool ownership by a long ways, have designed my last 3 pools, done salt, ozone, sand and paper filters, but just moved into a new home and am faced with a whole nother set of issues:
Largest pool I have ever owned. Size to follow. Built in '75, diving pool, about 9' deep in deep end which is over half the size of the pool. My guess: 40 x 15 x 6 (average depth)
2, TWO, count'um 2 wall jets about 3/4 inch in diameter...?????? 1 skimmer, 1 suction point for pool cleaner, that is IT! How this pool stays clear here in the desert (Scottsdale, AZ, where we have just had 12 days in a row of 100+ temps, today it will be 95!
ALL pool equip NEEDS to be replaced, its original. 1 hp motor for 2 jets, skimmer and pool vac (Hayward ultra vac). You cannot run all 2/3 at the same time, not enough power it seems. Pump basket is BRONZE about 5 inches in dia, maybe would hold a softball. PVC piping is about 1 in ID.
Pool was done by 'Anthony Pools Inc'.
I can get exact size and pics. Need guidance on EVERYTHING and everything to be replaced. I am a 'long-term' thinker, and I only have one chance to do it right the first time.
Pool works, is clean and algae free, but the equipment is living on borrowed time and leaks like a screen door.
Pool future: Replace plaster with Pebble-Tec.
I am listening, thank you...
