Hello everyone, I am almost finished with my pool and am looking for pointers on how to get started once it has been filled with water.
Pool details are:
14,000 gallon gunite
Sparkle quartz plaster
CircuPool RJ30 SWG
IntelliFlow VS-AU pump (variable speed)
8' x 6.5' overflow oval spa with eight jets
Pentair superflow 1 hp water feature pump (can also use the IntelliFlow pump for the waterfall when the spa is not in use)
400,000 btu pentair natural gas heater
After reading about plumbing on this site I decided to go with large plumbing:
Two skimmers with 2" pvc individually piped to the pump pad
One 3" drain from the pool
One 3" drain from the spa
2" suction side cleaner line (no trees anywhere near the pool)
2.5" pool return, splits to two 2" lines with two 1.5" returns each (four returns total)
2.5" piping to the spa jets
2" air line to the jets (no blower yet)
I have read Pool School and often refer back to it to get a better understanding.
What I am after is suggestions for pump run time(s) and at what speed and output percentage for the SWG. I realize that it will be trial and error to get everything right but am hoping to take some of the guess work out with pointers from experienced pool owners from this awesome forum (this is my first pool).
Thank you for any comments or suggestions.
