    Which infloor pop ups go where?

    Well, I think I may have screwed up.

    I have a six zone/14 head pop up infloor cleaning system. After repairing broken T-valves considerable debris fell into the system.

    It was clear that the debris was clogging the pop ups so (here's where I messed up), I took all the pop ups out at once instead of one at a time. Five of the 14 have small orifices and 9 large. Now I don't know which ones go where and don't have a pool builders diagram to help me figure this out.

    Hoping someone has a solution to this issue.

    Can you post a picture or a drawing of how the heads are laid out in the pool? That should help figure out how they should be installed.

    On my setup the smaller orifice are in the steps area and the larger ones go in the main body of the pool. Kinda like starting small at the top and getting bigger going down hill to the main drain.

    Hmm. Pool bottom has eight pop ups and I have 9 with large holes. My steps have 5 pop ups and I have a bench at far end of the pool with one popup that sits 18-24 in lower than the pool surface.

    If you need more info I'll diagram post pictures.

    Thanks!

    I would put the small ones on the steps and the rest in the pool and the last large one on the bench.

    Not sure which popup heads, but if you have these heads. http://aamfg.com/gamma3CleaningHead.php You have 4 nozzle sizes to choose from. They come apart but not easily.
