hey guys, new to forum.
Just bought a house which has an old pool (1989). Which is probably the very start of the inground cleaning systems technology lol.
I built a house in 1996 in the past with the same system(it was built right) and it worked great.
Now this old pool has me confused. I thought the main purpose of the floor blow heads was to direct debris/dirt to the floor suction. Now this ancient pool has a floor suction however it is not plumbed to the pump. The floor suction is plumbed to the skimmer and it stops there. Then the main suction goes from the skimmer to the pump, so just one line to the pump (i've always seen two, 1 floor & 1 skimmer).
Bought the house and it had no basket in it, So did research and found the right basket. Still I see no way that the skimmer directs any suction to the floor ? So the pop up heads do about nothing but blow dirt around and to each other as there is no floor suction?
Its the most dumbest setup i've ever seen ... I mean if they spent the money on the floor system, why didnt they run 2 suction lines to the pump??
So question is what can i do to make this system functional, And what is the reasoning involving this constructed set up?
