    Thanks everyone. The beauty of PVC is that they sell all these different angle joints. Eventually you will get to where you need to be. You don't even need a tape measure.

    You need to update your sig, that isn't a sand filter in your new plumbing.

    Looking at all that work is making me anxious.....I keep repeating in my head. Two suction lines and a three way valve to the pump, two return lines and a three way valve to the pool......repeat, repeat, repeat. Serenity Now, Serenity Now....LOL

    Really Nice work. Were you ever stationed on a submarine? That's what the piping looks like on one of those. Just curious

    You showed that with glue and a bucket of spare PVC parts anything is possible!

    Update - after testing, most of the joints leaked. It got me thinking what I did wrong. I bought the 2 pack of PVC glue and only used the purple stuff and stuck them together. Have a whole unopened can left. After doing a little reading, I think I have a hunch what is wrong. The purple stuff sure did smell good though.

    Yup. The purple stuff is primer. Bummer. Primer first, then glue.

    I like the clear primer and the clear glue. I like the speed of the clear too. Not too fast, not too slow.

    I think you should tidy up that electrical wire catastrophe waiting to happen next.

    I really need to fix these leaks. I will probably need to make a sketch of the pipes and number each piece so when I pull it all apart I will know how to put it back. This time I think I will just use Gorilla glue. That stuff will glue anything.

    As far as the wires go, I'm not as comfortable with electrical as I am with PVC.

    I'd just duct tape the joints, it should hold fine since it is already primed.

    Yep, I apologize to all. I was board so I thought I would bring a little humor to the pumping station. Don't worry. I'm done.
