So I am now on a mission after reading here till my eyes bleed. I am redoing my equipment pad and the old pic is below. I have a question I need some advise on. My plumbing is 1-1/2 from pool to pumps. I will replace the piping above the ground to 2". However my pad is below the pool where my piping is. It has 2 return line 1 is a pool vacuum line that's capped threaded and I have skimmer line, the main drain is plumbed to the skimmer. So to stop water flow for quick plumbing for 2 way jandy valve do I get a freeze pug for the skimmer or what. Also the return lines as the equipment is below a few feet below pool level?
I am redoing the pad also as I picked up a generator pad today, its plastic but it will do fine.
I also need to add a switch box on the wall for the pump in case I need to turn off power and in reading here my old intermatic turn wheel timer can not be used with the new pentair VS is what I read here.I don't have any other equipment as there's no spa, solar, heater or water features so just a on off electrical box for my 220v line.
I thought about the old bread trick quickly regarding the water flow, any suggestions are appreciated immensely.
