    Just moved and new IG pool deck has holes ?

    New house and new pool fun. Never had a sand filter so I plan to read up on that...
    Question: what are the holes in the deck that have a slight suction and are inline with the wall jets?

    Today was my introduction to the pool.
    Has a Hayward gas heater H250
    Hayward sand filter S220T
    1.25HP motor

    The pictures are of the entire pool. And zoomed in on a hole in the deck that makes a sucking sound and has a little suction power - never seen this before....


    Any thoughts?
    Thank you

    Pretty pool and gorgeous view! I can't help with the sucking holes.....

    Do you know how to make that water sparkle?

    Thank you! I'm heading back over to test and get the basics started... I fell in love with my current DE filter and how well it works, but I'm reading sand filters can do a great job too..!! Yes, I want that water to expose the white diamond brite and see the bottom drain. I don't even know how deep it is at the moment, the pressure gauge reads zero and that's all I know... I never wanted two pools, but until the other house sells, I'll be over both systems...

    I'm finding some info that it may be a Hayward Venturi system that pulls air into the wall get and increases the movement of the water... Not 100% sure, but that is the initial thought... It's the wet sucking sounds that have me wondering.
