I am very confused about the pool plumbing and was hoping someone can help me figure it out. I am attaching four pictures showing the layout.
The first picture called Big Picture.jpg has on the right which I called "Pool Equipment Area 1" the filter pump, de filter and polaris pump and all of this equipment is below the in ground pool. The left side which I called "Pool Equipment Area 2" used to have a chlorinator which was disconnected by the previous owners but am not sure what the valves do and what they control.
The second and third picture respectively called "Pool Equipment Area 1a.jpg" and "Pool Equipment Area 1b.jpg" show a more detailed picture of the equipment in Pool Equipment Area 1.
The fourth picture called "Pool Equipment Area 2.jpg" shows a more detailed picture of the equipment in Pool Equipment Area 2 which are the valves and where the chlorinator used to sit. All of this equipment is the same level as the pool.
What I am trying to figure out is how Pool Equipment Area 2 is plumbed?
Does this plumbing go to Pool Equipment Area 1 or back to the pool?
How can I figure out where it goes to the pool? (Side returns or floor returns) I have three floor returns in the pool. I do not think they work because I do not feel anything coming out of them but I do feel something coming out of all the side returns.
Any help on trying to figure out how to diagnose the problem would be great. I have been pulling my hair out trying to figure out how this is all laid out.
