I finally got my pool up and running after getting a new liner but it's my first pool and I have no clue what I am doing. I was hoping someone could give me a brief description of what I am looking at in my filter/pump area and skimmer. A little more confused where these pipes are going and what exactly the valves do. The #7 pipe goes out to nothing which I assume is just for backwashing?
I know I am looking at the filter, pump, chlorinator and heater but that's about it. Also in my skimmer there are 2 holes - hard to see the 2nd one in the pic but the second one is round but looks like there is a smaller square inside it.
I have an inground pool, vinyl liner, DE filter, Hayward SP2610x15 pump 1.5HP. It's about 16x32 I think maybe a tiny bit smaller - still in the process of learning more about my whole pool.
One issue I am having is with my vacuum - it's the Navigator Pro and it doesn't seem like I'm getting enough suction. The video said something about turning off the main drain but don't know how and I was assuming it had something to do with turning the valves.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I need it!
