My liner ripped and I took the opportunity to redesign the plumbing in my pool. The pool is a fairly large L shaped pool with approx 40K gallons. I have attached a diagram of the current pool and was hoping for any suggestions or critiques as to make it more efficient. The job is not 100% complete so if necessary I can make some minor changes.
I have replaced all my 1.5" plumbing with 2" plumbing. For suction I have two skimmers in on the backwall of the pool and a main drain in the deep end. I also have a 2 HP pump.
For returns, I have two jets in the shallow end by the stairs pushing the water towards the skimmer on the back wall. I also have two jets in the deep end pushing towards the back wall. Finally there are two jets in the stairs circulating the water out of it.
For an L shaped pool, does this configuration look correct?
Some concerns that I have seen are that there is a continuous buildup of debris that sticks to the side of the pool walls instead of going into the skimmers. I am not sure if this is an issue with where the jets are placed or if they should be pointed in some manner to generate a circular current? Also it is common to find leaves floating around the surface of the pool. Even if I have been out by the pool for 30 minutes, the leaves kind of float around the pool but dont make it into the skimmer during that time.
Now I am not sure if what I am describing is common and I am expecting too much from the pool. Also could is be just that I have my jets pointing straight ahead instead of angled to make a different "current" in the pool?
Sorry if this does not make sense, but I am new to pools and probably not explaining myself well.
Thanks in advance.
