Well I bought a used pool,its a 27' above ground pool. It came with a jacuzzi pump and sand filter. I think I got it hooked up right but im not sure if the sand filter head is any good?
The guy was using it just up to 3 weeks ago,I know its old has a few leaks but it appeared fine when I seen it run. The water isnt filled all the way yet it has about 3 more inches to go till it reaches the skimmer so we were just testing it out with the hose running in the skimmer box.
It works but it runs right out of the waste line,so I read some trouble shooting tips and it said there could be sand in there so I took off the head hosed it out and seem to move easier,and it did slow down. I tried to move it around to different positions and as soon as you press down on the handle it comes out like a fire hose out the waste line,that normal?
Its also looks like the pressure gauge is broken and looks cracked around where it screws in,Is the gauge real important? I could probally seal it up with something,but before I even go that far is this head shot?
I'll take some pics so you can see what im working with,but my wife asked me where is the shut off valve so the water doesnt come rushing out of the skimmer box if you need to work on the pump or filter etc.
We had a 18' intex pool and on the outside of the wall there were 2 plunger valves and you either opened them or closed them and you could take the hoses off,clean the filter etc, this pool has nothing?
It has a skimmer box and a hose fits on the bottom of that,that runs to the pump,it runs out of the pump to the filter,out of the filter to the clorinator,clorinator to the pool wall where it shoots back in,So if a hose comes unclamped,or you need to disconnect a hose your looking at a flood? Or is something missing or did I do something wrong?
