Hi guys. My name is Kris and am new to owning a pool as we bought our house with the pool already here. I'll start with a rundown as to what I have.
It is an inground vinyl liner pool
Pyrex Triton Tagelus TA 60D sand filter
We used the pool last summer and had no issues. This year we went to start up the pool and all was well. I noticed a few days later the water level was lower so I started to look around and found a few leaks. There was a leak where the control valve meets the tank, the sightglass with the vacuum relief was leaking from the holes in the end, Pvc joints where pipes enter and exit the heater and a pinhole at the pump basket housing. Just my luck lol.
Changed the seal at the tank to control head. No more leak. Replaced sight glass but still drips from the holes on the end during normal filtration. Should water enter the sight glass during filtration? As for the PVC leaks I'm replacing the joints and will attempt to epoxy the pump basket leak. Can anyone share their knowledge on the sight glass? What is the normal operating pressure for a similar filter?
Thanks in advance from a newbie 😜
