I have a in ground pool 17500 -20,000 gallon with liner & 1 skimmer & no main drain.
I had equipment failure at the end of last season, so the pool looks like & sounds like a pond with all the local frogs & bugs.
To add to the issues the pool had weed eater grass clippings in it then also. Oh boy the fun starts now, fix & clean.
At the end of last years season I noticed the multi-port valve was letting water bypass the filter setting & out the waste tub, not a lot but leaking none the less.
But I'm part Irish so you know what they say about the luck!
Then trying to clean & close the pool my helper vacuumed up enough grass (with the leaf bullet) to stop up the propeller.
I cleaned it out & as luck would have it he ignored the noise (the grass that got past the propeller in to the shaft area) and motor over heated shutting off.
It would not restart after I fixed the issue.I also have needed to replace the DE grid so no time like now to do it all.
My thoughts are falling into replace or fix (rebuild) items..
List of Issues :
Replace $90.+tax or rebuild $45+tax Hayward SP0710XR50 multi-port valve
replace DELE-42052 filter grids $90.+tax & hope nothing else is broken in the process.
There is a complete assembly for this parts $380. +ta
