    criss-crossed water liines?

    Hey,

    I replaced my polaris booster pump and motor. Like an idiot, I took the water lines off the old pump without paying attention to which line goes where. Now that the new one is in there, I am afraid to turn it on because I don't want to destroy anything if the water is hooked up wrong.

    There are two places to attach on the pump for water in or out. I don't know which is which.

    The hose I have on the top is connect to a pvc tee which goes to the main filter. The hose that I put on the center goes into the ground and presumably to the pool.

    Is this hooked up right or do I need to switch the hoses?

    I think you have them switched. The pipe going to the center of the round end should be coming out of the main pool return. The connector that comes out the top should run underground to the pool clearer connection on the side of the pool.

    wow, thanks for the lightning fast response.

    Here is another pic before I switch the hoses and turn her on, just to make sure.



    So what you are saying is that the correct setup is most likely hose from the pvc tee in the center and hose from the ground on top? Sorry to be redundant just trying to be clear. Thanks again.
