Hi - here's a picture of my current plumbing situation. I don't like it. Among other things, I'm not getting enough suction (even with main drain off) on my vacuum for my PoolCleaner, I only get 8 or fewer RPMs. I am also interested in adding an Intermatic panel (I'm using Z-wave automation for my house so their z-wave box makes sense) and want to use actuators to control vacuum, waterfall, maybe aerator.
Anyway - I think I can get rid of the stupid half-buried valve on the vacuum and put a 3-way Jandy hooked up to Pump/Pool Cleaner/Skimmer, and keep the On-Off for main drain as-is, right? But I'm not really sure how to plumb my pressure side wisely to allow actuator control of waterfall/aerator. Any suggestions?
