I have been wondering when my pump was going to go and it looks like today was the day. I have several questions that I need help with.
Pump size - we bought this house three years ago and the pump has a 2HP pump on it. Did a very good job cleaning the pool. The pool is just under 15,000 gallons. I have read a lot here about over sized pumps but I can decide if I should go 1 or 1-1/2 HP?
I am thinking a Pentair WhisperFlo because it is very similar to what I have, any comments?
Next is a concern at that is plumbing. Below are two pictures of my pipe connections. As you can see it is all glued together. On the top outlet it looks like there might be enough room to the right of the top tee to add a coupling and just put new fittings to the pump. What is the gray pipe? Picture two is my concern area as these are all glued. Let is one skimmer, center is the pool drain, right is the other skimmer. Again all glued. I am not a plumber but have worked with PVC pipe but I am not sure if there is some kind of tricky connector to make this easier.
What is the priming procedure before restart?
