    Pump pressure vacuum

    Poolwalls possible leaking

    Hi I think I may be leaking water between the joints in the walls and I had a couple of questions 1- Can anyone tell if this are fiberglass or if not what can they be the bottom is concrete. 2- Would a leak through the joints cause the washout under the apron? Thanks

    Added a pool heater now pressure low

    Went out and bought a new 2hp pump and as I was remove the old one thought I would double check in the impeller and sure enough ir was clogged with pine needles. Once I removed them and re-hooked up the pump all is good :party:

    Added a pool heater now pressure low

    I added a new pool heater a distance from the pool equipment and now the pressure has dropped. The new heater is 20' away with 2 - 90 degree turns. I have a 1 hp pump now and am thinking I will have to increase it but to what?
