Hi All, I just got a new MX-8 cleaner and it doesn't work very well with my Haward auto-vac plate (switches between vac and skim). My pool originally had a pressure cleaner that was in disrepair. There is a threaded 1.5" female pipe in the pool wall and it converts down to a 1" line at the equipment pad, not sure where the downsize to 1" is at.
Pool: 35k IG, equipment pad same plane as pool and 65' away.
Pool pump: Old Purex AH8 2HP (I think ). Will upgrade to intelliflow 2-speed or VS maybe at the same time.
First question can I use this 1" line to run my pool vac? If yes (please say yes)...
I would like to use this line to run the MX-8 but the trick is, I would like to have the automation (added later) be able to switch between skim and vac.
So I will need another 3 way valve correct?
Here is a picture of the lines with the questions I have. Let me know if I should post any more info.
Thanks pool gurus!
