just installed a (used) Hayward SwimClear C2030 with filthy carts; new ones were supposed to be here yesterday, FedEx now says next Monday.
Need to skim before next Monday (or whenever they show up).
When I installed the filter, I removed all the 1 1/2" PVC (caused by the old, disused heater) and upgraded it to 2" throughout.
The pump is 2 hp, maybe because the equipment is 40' from the pool - there is going to be some friction loss, even with plastic pipe.
This filter plugs the top of the (4) catrs - the water is sprayed directly on the dome of the housing, and is forced into the cores from the outside. the bottom openings sit on a spider which collects the water and pushes it out the bottom opening.
The bottom opening is right into the pump, so i router it up and over the pump suction line.
The pad is more than large enough for an intelligent layout, put some idiot put the heater in the dead center of the pad, making over 1/2 of the pad inaccessible.
So the outlet raises about a foot coming out of the filter.
So: before I start diconnection the pressure line at various points (which will **** of my back something fierce):
Between that rise in the pressure line and the distance to the pool, does 25 psi (new gauge) seem even possibly normal?
Thanks again for all the help!
