First off, let me say thank thank thank you for TFP. I've owned a pool (bought a new house) for exactly 3 weeks and have learned a wealth of information from this website. The Pool Calculator is invaluable as are all the great people and threads here.... I've learned a ton.
I'm coming from a Jandy RS6 system with a Stealth 2 pump and have ordered an IQ900-RS kit to upgrade the panel to iAqualink so I can get a variable speed pump installed eventually. While I'm comfortable with doing the IQ900-RS myself, I had a really dumb plumbing question about replacing the Jandy Stealth 2 with the IF VS. I'm going to have a very handy friend help me, but I figured it couldn't hurt to get as much information before I start cutting pipe.
Am I correct in I cut the pipes at the red arrows, then put a "joiner" piece between these Intelliflo unions and the existing pipe?
Sorry for the idiot-grade question, but hey I'm new to all this pool stuff. Any tips, tricks or caveats feel free to chime in.
