Hoping to get an experts opinion here.
I just purchased a house with a pool and am doing my own maintenance.
My water is looking good, but one of my pipex has sprung a small leak at the joint. Simple enough to fix, but my issue is I don't know why the pipe exists in the first place.
The pipe is a flexible hose the tees off from the pump, goes through a valve and directly to the returns, bypassing the filters and chlorinator.
I've linked to some pictures of this, as it'll probably make more sense.
My question is simple. Do i need this pipe and if so, what in the heck is it doing.
Thanks Pool gurus.
