Good morning, after noon or evening, whitch ever the case may be
I have started to redo my pool, back patio and yard before the summer hits this year. I will be upgradeing my 16" round intex pool to the 24" round intex pool and will be also redoing the pump/filter plumbing. So I will start off my project by asking a question about a pool fill line I want to add to my pool.
I have an automatic sprinkler system in the yard that has a constant water feed to supply all of the sprinkler zones. The sprinkler system has a water backflow device because it is tapped into the house main water line. Since the sprinkler system has the device and is constantly full of water can I tap in to that sprinkler line and connect it to my return line after the filter to provide a water source to fill the pool without having to pull out the hose? I plan on putting in a check valve to help keep the pool water from backing up in to the sprinkler sytem and also add a manual ball valve to the fill line and a manual ball valve in the return line after the filter and before the fill line. I know in order for the pool fill to work I would have to turn off the pump close the valve on the return line and open the valve on the fill line. I also have the intex SWG so would I put the fill line before the SWG or after the SWG? I think it needs to go after but not to sure.
This is the start of many questions I will have during the early spring upgrade.
Any input would be great, Thanks
