    Heater only for spa?

    Good afternoon.... I have an in-ground 10k gallon pool with a spill over spa. I bought the house last year with a broken poll heater (I knew it was broken). Now, I am starting to look into possibly getting a new heater and had a few simple questions. FYI- the old one was natural gas and there is...

    Leak in backwash valve?

    Thanks for the reply. Ya I’m going to take the housing and everything off and see if I can find the problem. If not, just may buy a new housing and try that.

    Leak in backwash valve?

    Good afternoon, earlier this summer I thought I had a leak I my return line but discovered that the leak was in my return valve as I had a slow but continuous run of water going through the backwash valve (runs underground direct to sewage line.... can see the valve below that allows me to...

    Pool leaks when not running?

    Good afternoon. I have been dealing with what may/may not be a minor leak for a year. Just when I think I have it figured out, something else happens. A few weeks ago I thought I had a leak and did the bucket test to confirm I did. I did some troubleshooting and realized I had a bad o-ring on...

    Pump cycle times?

    Interesting... I always thought it needed to run longer to keep the water moving/flowing.

    Pump cycle times?

    Wait, so you only need to run your pump for a few hours/day? I always had it an hour for every ten degrees in temperature (90 degrees= 9 hours). Without the pump running, wont the algae come back?

    Leak in backwash pipe?

    Good afternoon, I’m trying to determine where a leak In my pool is and I have noticed that when I open my backwash valve water slowly falls out.... my backwash is connected to a pipe that hooks into my sewer line so this valve is usually not opened I just opened it to see what would happen...

    Possible leak with no air bubbles

    Whoops don’t know why that posted again. Well I wouldn’t say the Val es are failing for say but when I open the valve that normally would open the backwash line, water flows out slowly. Which makes me wonder if the water is slowly spilling out into the sewer line. I’m going to listen into...

    Possible leak with no air bubbles

    Is it possible that there could be a leak in the plumbing by the filter and backwash valve? I just did a backwash and noticed that even when the pump is set to normal (not backwash) and I open the backwash valve water slowly flows out? When I put it in backwash the water shoots out.... FYI this...

    Possible leak with no air bubbles

    I hate to not run my pump for that long.... it could take several days if trying all possible culprits.
