Thread: Finally Plumbed my AGP with PVC

    Finally Plumbed my AGP with PVC

    It was not easy. Ran into some speed bumps, but it worked out good. I never worked with PVC before and it was a good learning experience.
    Try finding the 2" to 1 1/2" sch 40 adapter that I needed at lowe's or home depot. No luck. Found it at a mom and pop shop in farm country.
    Now trying to follow all NY guidelines is a problem.
    I have to replace the power cord on the pump to a 3 foot cord, have an electrician install an outlet, move my aqua trol control panel closer to the pump so a 3 foot long pump cord can reach it. And of course bonding of the pool.
    Pain in the ***.

    Just curious, the unions come apart for storage correct?

    Nice work btw. Cool that you have two returns.

    Never mind. I answered my own question. Just needed to pay close attention to your pics. lol

    That is a great job there!

    I, too, like the double return jets there. I see you have the sand filter and then the SWG off of that. I need to do that with mine. My SWG is sitting off to the side until I can get some additional stones to sit it on after I installed my sand filter a few weeks ago.

    My SWG is an Intex model with the attached paper filter system. I'm thinking I can remove the cartridge filter since I have the sand filter and then just have it run on schedule. Do you run the Sand and the SWG at the same time?
