New to tfp and came to get help/advice with my pool.
My pool configuration is; sunset pool, one skimmer, one main drain, two returns to pool, dt filter, hayward super II pump (self prim), maybe 20k+ gallons
Two questions/problems: (1) Barracuda G3 gets stuck on drain and (2) cleaning path under my 16 mil solar cover is less than half the size of the pool.
So, I recently purchase a barracuda G3 cleaner.
When installing it I tested the water flow with their testing device (pictured here http://www.poolsupplysales.com/v/vspfil ... 7500-1.jpg ) the flow was only at 1. After completely cleaning my dt filter it increased to 1 1/2. The manual says it sb 3 (total possible is 1-5). I adjusted the flow valved supplied with the cleaner to 3 (which is the max - pictured here http://www.1800pools.com/static/images/docs/flow.jpg ).
I spoke to the place I bought it and they said I need to adjust my flow from the skimmer to the main drain and replace my grate drain cover with the California compliant drain cover (distributes the flow in a wider circle.
Problem 3: I can't find the flow valved to my skimmer / MD. I just have one vacuum hole in the bottom of my skimmer. I don't see a valve anywhere. Does the bottom of the skimmer plate come off and the valve is underneath?
Hope this makes sense and thanks for the time. I will buy a Starbucks for your time if you like.
