    Pool Renovation

    This is my first post to TFP, even though I've been a stalker for a while now. Getting ready to undertake a renovation (plaster/coping, new deck, etc). I think I have grasp on the project but I have a question and I wanted to get opinions. After 15 years of having a pressure side cleaner, I have decided to go with a robot. My question is, what should I do with the pressure side return line, since I will not be using it any longer. Should I just leave it in case I should want to return to a pressure side cleaner, this giving me options in the future. Just wanted to see what some of your thought are?

    I would leave it as-is. I would just turn off the valve that controls it. As you said, it gives you, or the next owner, the option of going back to a pressure-side cleaner in the future.

    Leave it, either screw on cap it or at minimum spring loaded shut off cap. For future options.

    Good luck with your renovation! We just completed a smaller project (tile, coping, and plaster) just down the road from you in Finksburg.
