    Jandy Del60 - bulkhead nut cracked when I screwed it in - getting a new one - silicone on internal side off inlet / outlet elbows?

    I tried to just reuse the bulkhead orings and retighten (don't do this) with the big ole pipe wrench but the orings were too flattened, and I eventually split the threads on the bulkhead here it screws into the inside the tank elbows thank goodness I didn't injure the inlet or outlet elbows...

    Jandy DE 60 - small return leak del60 - o-rings and jandy r40 sized led replacement light bulb

    Hi All - have a slow drip on the bottom filter connector and looks like it's the filter outlet - as I look at the parts diagram, and looks like a couple of o rings which shouldn't be too bad, any concerns and any tools besides a strap wrench to take off and retighten? Also - any led...

    Moving ... from Newark, DE to Allen, TX - any pointers for a Texas pool owner?

    wastage is my name for the loss of the water bag due to freezing in the winter - or just from handling at opening :) Love that no closing - saves a lot of effort, and will be pretty to look at over the winter months. -Adrian

    Moving ... from Newark, DE to Allen, TX - any pointers for a Texas pool owner?

    Hi Everyone - I'm moving from the Northeast to Dallas, and changing from a vinyl 28k to a pebbletec 35k (no idea on volume really) - challenges in the northeast were 1) full sun algae - responded well to borax, brushing and chlorine 2) opening / closing leaf load (mostly just due to wet leaves...

    My New PentairSuperflo VS

    Just to add to this for you - congrats on the variable speed, you won't be disappointed- I run at about 1500RPM for 2 hours / day to skim, and then 750RPM 24/7. Pump costs went from about 3-4$ / day running 8-12 hours at full speed to about $1 / day on average. (This is not measured but...

    Will Polaris 360 (F1) connector fit existing Polaris 360 "port" in the wall?

    Re: Will Polaris 360 (F1) connector fit existing Polaris 360 "port" in the wall? just looked at the manuals - and it appears the return adapter is identical - they might have different pressure setups (pressure relief setups in the return hose coupling adapters), but it looks like it...

    Purex 4036 DE amount 5.3 (label) vs 3.6 (online manual)

    Thx j. The lower amount seems to be working fine and not building backpressure as quickly as the 5 lbs did. Clarity and chemistry appear the same so just gonna stick with it.

    Purex 4036 DE amount 5.3 (label) vs 3.6 (online manual)

    So I'm thru opening, and was looking at the amount of DE that is required for the 4036 filter media - and I found an online manual vs label discrepancy [snip] from the pentair online manual Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) Precoat Requirements Filter Model *By Weight Number Pounds 4024 2.4 4036 3.6...

    Ok. I finished. It wasn't so so scary. Pvc is very forgiving.

    plumbing help after filter ... CPVC / PVC 1.5" joining new Jandy

    So the top pic shows the plumbing in all it's glory - the chlorinator used to sit between the 1.5" pvc pipe with 3/8" hole in pic 2 and the 2" pvc hole with 3/8" hole in pic 3. I've cut the 2inch out - that wasnt too scary, and is a straightforward replumb, what i want to do is figure out the...
