I just purchased a new house that has a pool that I'm still trying to wrap my head around. I have absolutely zero pool experience, but have been reading pool school as much as possible. It has an infinity edge so the plumbing seems a little complex. Check my sig for details. It seems like pump1 is hooked up to the main pool only, pump2 is hooked up to the spillover pool only, and pump3 which runs the waterfall must be pulling water from the spillover pool since it causes the infinity edge to spillover. Does this sound right?
The current status is pump1 filter is set to "filter", but the pressure gauge shows 60psi. When the pump is off, it shows 30psi. I tried backwashing, but it didn't change. Maybe broken gauge?
Pump2 filter is currently set to "Recirc", and the drain plug on the filter is pulled. The pump looks like it's pumping quite a bit of water, but also has a good bit of air in it. Is this normal when in "Recirc" mode? I bought a drain plug for it today, but should I leave it in "Recirc" mode until the Spring?
All 3 pumps were set to run 24/7 which seems like a huge waste of electricity. What is my best strategy for the rest of the winter here in Tulsa?
Thanks in advance for the help! This site has already taught me a ton of info.
