    Just installed new cartridge filter, two questions...

    Thanks Jim. I use hairnets as well, and they do capture a bunch of stuff. I will check how it skims now at 1400 and adjust accordingly. I do not have a SWCG. I add chlorine usually in evening. All good info, and basically will save me $$$ on the run time and also the life of the equipment...

    Jim, Marty, thanks for your responses. Honestly when I switched from a single speed to the VS, I just used the default that came with the pump. Can you guys share the schedule you use? I know everyone needs different speeds, times based on there configuration. My goals are the same as...

    Diverter valve question

    This is my VERY BASIC layout with my current sand filter. You can see the backwash pipe in back. This is a 5 year old pic with my old pump, Layout is basically same though.

    Diverter valve question

    Diverter valve question

    OK, just to make sure I understand, I don't have to have the water come in through the side labelled "inlet". It can come in any of the three openings? And what you are recommending is just moving the label right?
