I recently moved into a house with my first pool, it was a foreclosure and in real poor shape. i managed to get it all working and clean and pristine thanks mostly to this website, bleach, borax and baking soda.
I rebuilt the pump motor once with my uncle, but 6 months later and its trashed. the sand filter was also trashed, base cracked, leaking, air purge valve gone so i decided to renovate.
right now I've managed to cut out the pump and sand filter and will be shopping for those soon. I'm left with a plumbing mess I'm not sure what goes to what.
I've labeled some of the pictures i took with a perm. marker to help me identify, hopefully with your help.
Can i solicit your assistance kindly to help me identify the plumbing or determine a testing method to help me identify?
the imugr album below, first pic labeled "left side":
A seems like it might be a backwash pipe to street? I'm not sure how to test at this point - i should have done it prior to pump failure. i was thinking of turning the valve to divert to A elbow and then watch the clean out in front of house for water volume.
B seems like it has some type of one way check valve with the arrow pointing TOWARDS the return, instead of away.
C has a water valve or some type of valve attached, i believe its always been open.
D is a diverter, I'm unsure what its name is, but i know it controls the pop ups in the pool. it looks like its been gutted and rotting away. i am going to try to find a replacement online via the #'s on it and dig up the PVC further so i can attach it properly. (edit: i think this may be the right rebuilt kit? https://www.amazon.com/540251-5-Port...cturing+540251)
the second picture has E on the elbow, prior to the elbow is an "ortega" valve, this controls the jets and water circulation in the spa thing. i need to replace this as it requires the strength of an olympic power lifter to turn even though i rebuilt it.
