Yup, I am back again! I thank everyone on this forum who has helped me work through issues of setting up my first pool. Got another question.
Our pool water has become as warm as bath water (one "virtue" of living in Florida). Did some research and found that attaching a pool sprinkler to the return will help lower the temperature 3-10 degrees (I can't afford the $1,500 cooling systems). Unfortunately the sprinkler has a standard 1.5 inch fitting whereas my Coleman pool doesn't.
I went to Lowes and got a 3 inch to 1.5 inch condenser PVC pipe and attempted to attach it to the return on my pool wall. Unfortunately the threads do not line-up and I cannot get the darn thing to connect. I fiddled around with other avenues but none worked. I was able to hold the 1.5 inch pipe from the sprinkler in the return and it worked (as long as I held it). When I did this, the sound the pump made went up dramatically...which I am assuming means there is too much pressure in the pump.
Assuming I am not the first person to experience this issue, is there anyone out there that has an idea for me to fix my problem?
I am willing to provide whatever information you may need to help me through this...I am trying to do it in the most expeditious and least expensive manner but at this point I am willing to try almost anything. THANKS!
