Howdy from South TX.
I grew up swimming on this pool and now it's time for me to maintain it - the pool is about 40 yr old. Been replacing a few things as I go.
Replaced DE filter grids, skimmer baskets, gasket on Multiport Main Valve, new backup valve, rebuilt Polaris 380(maybe I should have bought a new one) due to the fact that I need to also replace the leader hose since the hose is missing floaters and seems to be leaking from the connectors.
Pool Size about 30K gallons
One of my questions is why would the water pressure drop on the jets. The pump starts strong and then it just drops in pressure and the gasket on the pump starts to leak.
I want to replace the gasket but the model number has rubbed off. can anyone identify ? seems to be a Howard model from Leslie's pool.
