Hey guys, I installed my 2 speed 1hp pump last week and since I've been in the SLAM process I never tried low speed aside from testing to see if it actually worked or not.
Anyhow, I'm close to the end of the SLAM process (MY POOL IS VERY VERY CLEAN! THANK YOU TFTP AND BBB!!!!!) and in preparation of installing my SWG and whatnot, I have a few concerns when I switch my pump to low speed.
First, after I have backwashed, the Clean PSI on the sand filter is 11 psi, when I switch to low power on the pump, it drops down to about 4-5 psi. Is this to be expected?
Now something may be of consequence, I recently bought this house and honestly up until about an 1hr ago I noticed I didnt have jet returns (never owned a pool before so I really never noticed!), I just have 3 returns and it just has the opening where you can screw on the fittings when its winterized.
Here is a picture:
(sorry if its a crude drawing)
So im going to order some return jets, any suggestions? I saw the circulator 360, its kinda pricey, but do the cheaper 5-10$ ones work any good?
The wind blows from left to right on the diagram, so it goes mostly towards the skimmer, I assume I should point the jets at a 45 degree angle towards the skimmer?
I feel silly asking these questions but you all have been amazing and any advice, thoughts are most welcome and appreciated!
