Hi all. I am building a new IG pool in the Houston area and have a plumbing questions.
I had my pool plumbed about 3 weeks ago, just before I went on a vacation/work trip. We've had a ton of rain while I was gone (just putting this out there in case it means something), but nothing has been done on the pool while I have been away.
I have 2 pumps for my pool...
1 pump is a waterfall pump that has it's own return and goes straight to the sheer descent (no filtration). It was pressurized to 20 PSI and is still at 20 PSI.
The main pump (for pool, spa, 2 main drains, 2 skimmers, all returns, and bubblers) started at 25 PSI, but is now a little over 16 PSI. It has slowly dropped. Is this a concern?
My initial thoughts are that a 40% drop in pressure is bad. However, I'm not sure if some pressure might leak out the skimmers, etc. if they aren't capped off and this is normal.
Can someone please let me know if I should get the plumber back out? Or is this pretty typical?
