    Heat Pump in Las Vegas?

    Ok, thanks guys... The solar works pretty well but I'd like to get get more use in April and October. I don't really like using a cover (pain putting on and taking off) but I guess I'll look into that as I did have a solar cover years ago. I think running a gas line will be too expensive as...

    Heat Pump in Las Vegas?

    Seems that I am having difficulty locating a contractor to install a heat pump in Las Vegas. Those I have spoken with recommend against using a heat pump, even contacted Leslies who sell and install heat pumps in other area of the country but do not carry them in Las Vegas. From what I have...

    Question on plumbing for SWG

    I'm not sure on the supply versus return... I see the output from the filter runs to a "T" right above the yellow line then continues through the automatic valve and depending on whether that is on or off is directed to the solar panels or the return to the pool. If the yellow was the return...

    Question on plumbing for SWG

    OK, thanks... The VRV is at the top corner of the panel layout, it was leaking several years ago and I removed it and didn't see anything unusual (spring loaded flap if I recall), reinstalled it and no issues since. If I were to move the auto valve actuator from the valve with the red pipe to...

    When the solar turns on there has always been been some air bubbling from the returns for a minute or so, then stops. The solar was put in around 15 years ago. I don't hear anything when the pump shuts off regardless of whether the solar is on or off. Not sure what a VFR is... is that the...

    Question on plumbing for SWG

    I guess I'm somewhat unclear on the water flow with the solar... The pipe indicated by yellow is connected with a T from the filter output and the pipe indicated by red is connected when the solar valve is on. The valve on the yellow pipe is manual and I was told to turn that off when the solar...

    Question on plumbing for SWG

    Ok thanks... Only remaining question is regarding the check valve... Can that be omitted or placed below the flow sensor?

    Question on plumbing for SWG

    Thanks for the quick reply! This forum is great! I'm wondering about the flow switch placement though. In this picture from discountsaltpool.com the CircuPool-RJ-30 shows the vertical mounting however isn't the flow switch in this picture in the downward vertical position? Also the existing...

    Question on plumbing for SWG

    Looking at converting to a salt chlorine pool and I'm trying to determine the plumbing for the SWG cell. Can any SWG cell be mounted vertically? I don't have much space to work with before running into a lot of valves and junctions that I would want to leave as they are. There is also a...

    Just Joined... Hello

    Found this forum and have some questions regarding converting out inground gunite pool from chlorine tabs to salt/chlorine. Was thinking of hopefully being able to do it myself but would hire the job out if necessary. I'll see what I find on here and probably have some questions...
