We have finally completed our pool and are able to enjoy it in the fine Texas heat. We decided to go with a Paramount PV-3 cleaning system with a MDX-R3 drain and a Debris Cannister. The infloor cleaner works great but there does not appear to be any suction from the main drain or the side port on the debris cannister. The PB told me that the MDX has an anti-vortex cap on the drain so I will never feel any suction. That just sounds wrong, but maybe he is right. Also I was told that the side port on the debris cannister, is an equalizer port and that it will not provide any suction. I pointed out that the Paramount website shows that you can use the port with a cleaner. To which I was told that is correct if we only had a pool and not a pool/spa. Again, that does not sound right.
The PB built a good pool but I don't think they are that knowledgable with the Paramount products. Does anyone know if he was correct in his explanations or were they just trying to placate me with an answer that could be right.
Thanks for your help.
