Hi folks... I have been reading and enjoying everyone's pic's for a while now... I have decided I want to do my first of many upgrades to my pool. I am second owner unfortunately so many things I wish I had a say in I didn't... and it is what it is... Like no sumps so I don't open to water under the liner ever year . Anyway... I want to add Deck Jets... but I have a bunch of concrete in the way... I do however have a retaining wall I think I can get away with using. Please let me know what you think.
I would like to tie into my return line to a manifold something like this: (Hope its OK to use someone else's pic's))
And run 4 jets to my retaining wall that looks like this:
And just have the jets shoot into the water... I could do 2, 3 or 4 jets I think... not sure what would look cool... 2 jets and a fan in the middle? Anyway..
Thoughts are to dig a trench (not sure how deep) from the pad to the locations on the wall, then run the lines and have the jets just above the ground where they can make it over the wall ok to get to the water.... the fill it all in and use the valves on the 4 lines to tweak the pressure tot he jets.
My current setup (I haven't cleaned the pad yet (so sorry its so messy).
I am taking the puck canister out this weekend, I never use it. And if I ever needed to use the pucks for some reason I can till drop in the skimmer.
I was planning on getting the Jandy jets:
And for pipe I was thinking 1 1/2 (everything is 1 1/2 except the slide) to the wall then 3/4 up to the jet??? Or is it 1 1/2 to the manifold (including manifold), then 3/4 for each run all the way to the jet?
let me know your thoughts...
