I bought a house with a pool already in place and stats should be in my signature, but I ran into an issue. I dont remember how it happened but somehow I had a pvc elbow close to the pump crack. I replaced it and while I had the plumbing apart I changed out the old gate valves for pvc ball valves. Now I have a decent amount of bubbles in the pump basket. Was this a mistake. They are ball valves from menards, nothing special.
Would changing out the ball valves for a jandy valve and redoing the connections I made possible solve my issues. I'm new to the whole pool plumbing and is there anything different that I should do.
