Hello to everyone and Happy belated New Years.
I'm currently helping a friend with a 25,000 gallon in-ground pool, 3 returns,dedicated suction line,creepy crawler suction side cleaner. 3hp Pentair variable speed pump. The pump is one of the new types which local utility company offers a rebate. Whenever the valve is open to introduce flow from the cleaner line the pump basket begins to loose prime and will eventually become dry.
My suggestion is to keep the majority of the pipe buried and place a Jandy 3way valve between the vac line and main drain line directly in front of the pump. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Known issues:The main drain is clogged and the skimmer is missing the weir door. Pool is filled to middle of skimmer opening.
Converted from pucks to BBB Pool store told him that the "forums" told one of their customers to put orange juice in their pool.. That's another topic......
