    Question. See photo below for the products I’m using: I was trying to find information on what the normal pressure should be on the filter now that I have it running. Currently it is at 12 psi.

    This is why I believe the pipe is universal. A store like Home Depot is not going to carry only drain pipe. I’ve you schedule 40 many times in the past and this is the heavy stuff that I’ve always used. There is no way something blows through this

    Made some progress today but really blew it with the skimmer location. I didn’t realize that all the YouTube videos I have watched were the Hayward being installed on 90° vertical walls.

    Guys, I know this is going to seem impossible. In the video, I was using a cut piece of tubing from a large 25 foot roll I bought on eBay. Just for giggles, I tried the parts on the other end of the 1 1/2 roll and it’s more snug!!! In fact, it may actually work. So is there a possibility that...

    I did verify that the sizes are correct on both the tubing and the parts. It has 1 1/2” printed right on the tubing. The tubing is just not snug at all in the parts and they mostly slide freely in them. One strange thing I noticed was that they really feel loose in the ball valves but a tiny bit...
