We bought a house that had a pool and we are trying to learn as much as we can about the equipment. We don't have good pool shops in town, they all seem unwilling to educate.
I have some questions on regular operations of the pool. I've included details on my pool as well.
Inground 18 X 36 with 8 foot deep end (we think it's 8 feet?)
Salt system (Intelli Chlor IC40)
Hayward sand filter
AC Smith Centurion Switchless pump
My main question is what position the valves need to be in order to run the pool normally and what positions I need them in to vacuum. There are two valves leading to the pump and three leaving the filter. What position turns on the skimmer/drain and the jets? I've tried playing around with it a little but my husband has heard horror stories of DIY pool maintenance.
I already know from this forum (so much information!) that I need to replace the pressure gauge. It reads the same whether it's on or off.
