I bought a house with a pool in December, and it was just opened today, but I have a few questions/issues. It's a 16x34 with SWG, solar heating, Sand filter. There is no bottom drain, just a skimmer on one side, and a downward angled pipe on the other side.
First question is regarding the skimmer, there is no suction. I am not sure if the line is clogged, or if it was just not opened properly? I took a look and there are 2 holes at the bottom, one seem to be plugged, and no suction from either
Second question is regarding the Jandy valve position, and may be related to the skimmer. What position should it be in?
Also, the pressure gauge on the filter seems to be pegged. never changes, even when pump is off, and gauge is disconnected.
Third question would be regarding the actuator for the solar panels. what position should it be in? It's a Pentair, control panel says Compool Lx220. on the actuator there is an On1, Off, On2 selector switch.
Pics attached. Any help you can give would be appreciated!
Other side, not sure what this is for?
Solar Actuator... what position?
Jandy Valve... what position?
