I'm hoping to get some recommendations from you about the best way to reconnect a slide to our pool system. I'm thinking the ideal setup would be to tie it into the return line at the pump station and have some type of adjustable valve at the slide to open/close the line.
Anyways, please check out the pic below. As you can see, the slide has a line burried at the foot of the ladder but after following it I discovered it ENDS underneath that big boulder on the right. I can easily run a new line back to the pump station (hidden behind the lattice in the picture) but I'm stumped on how to tie it into the return.
I'm guessing I'd have to drain the return somehow, then drill into the 1 1/2" return and install some kind of fitting or junction? I'm sure there are psi-related factors I need to be considering. Oh and the line coming from the slide looks like 3/4" condouit...it's dark grey instead of white pvc.
This is our first summer to own a pool so we're learning as we go. Pool School has been a GREAT help but I haven't really found anything regarding slide connections!
Thanks for your input!!!
