    Logistic question, how far/long of a run of pipe should be between the pool pump and the filter

    Well my plan is to put a jandy valve before or just after the pool filter so I can dump water from the pool when needed. Come to think of it, I will put the valve after the filter. Whenever I aim to clean it, shut off pump, take off cover, shift valve to the drain pipe. System should pretty...

    Logistic question, how far/long of a run of pipe should be between the pool pump and the filter

    This is more of a "what is the answer/fact" question. So I am going to replace my pool filter with a cartridge filter (TY for that recommendation also). I have space next to my pump (its perfect pool filter size space), but I don't believe there will be a very long run from my pool pump to...

    Looking to replace a Hayward Microclear Stainless Steel II 72 DE filter with a Pentair Quad DE filter. Size question.

    hmm. Never considered a straight cartridge filter. I'll look into them. So looking at the Clean & Clear Plus Cartridge Filter 420 ft2 or the Clean & Clear Plus Cartridge Filter 320 ft2 Considering the literal max flow of my pool is .. 30 gallons, and that's going to rocket down. Would...

    Looking to replace a Hayward Microclear Stainless Steel II 72 DE filter with a Pentair Quad DE filter. Size question.

    so my Hayward is looking to go the way of the do-do (been there probably since the pool was installed in 75). Trying to figure out which size works. The Quad D.E. 60 or the Quad D.E. 80. Pools 30k gallons, with a variable speed on 24/7. Average flow off the meter's looks to be 30 gallons a...

    Can't seem to get the pool to 3ppm chlorine

    It seems that its three fold. Ones the algae, 2nd is the cya (its just flat out too low), third, 2 weeks of straight blinding sun (burned off whatever was generated). Getting the CYA up now and I suspect once that's back up, the chlorine will balance itself out. I'll be working on the algae...

    Can't seem to get the pool to 3ppm chlorine

    I have my theories but lemme ask here to see if I am missing something. Have a 30,000 pool (125 feet around, my guestimates its 30k with a 10 foot deepend). Have a circupool rj60 that I installed last year. All the chemical balances are correct except the chlorine content. I am trying to get...

    Do I need skimmer diverter valves if main drain is plumped separately?

    From what I see, no. They seem to be connected via somepipe underneath the pool. There are no mysterious holes that I can see. Thank you.

    Do I need skimmer diverter valves if main drain is plumped separately?

    1 valve for both skimmer, 1 valve for the floor drain, 1 valve for the spa. The floor drain is not plumbed to the skimmer.

    Running pool equipment year round in winter / keeping small in ground pool open all year in Ohio

    Your natural gas bill is going to be enormous. I have a 30k pool, and to heat it daily costs roughly 20 dollars. Assuming you do the same, your natural gas bill would come to maybe 5 bucks daily, or 150 dollars a month during the winter running it 24/7. Assuming no breakdowns.... And...

    Do I need skimmer diverter valves if main drain is plumped separately?

    I have three returns coming from the pool, the skimmers are 1, the main drain is number 2, and the drain for the spa is the third. The spa and main drain has their own valve. The main drain and the skimmer valve are always open. Do I need skimmer diverters (UFO's?) Thanks.

    Is CircuPool really the best?

    Have a curcupool rj60. Have a large pool and it’s been a rockstar. Had to set it st 75 to keep up with the chlorine demand (I have a hungry pool). Works well. You can buy pipes and build your own vertical kit. It’ll be about 3 feet tall.

    Planning on Changing Pool Filter, the Pentair Quad DE filter (question on valve selection).

    Just what I am looking for. I have to replace the old pull valve diverter I have with the original filter regardless so i will be plumbing one in to it regardless. Thank you again.
