    Return line leak under concrete on new build

    Yikes! Those pics make me cringe. I’m not happy about it, but leaning towards just blocking off the leaking return. PB said he’ll put something in writing about covering costs to fix a return if one fails in the future (since I’d only have 2 going forward). He’s also going to be covering...

    Return line leak under concrete on new build

    Thanks everyone for the replies! @TX2OBX - All 3 returns come together at a 3-1 union outside of the concrete and then a single line goes to the equipment pad. So, I have been able to isolate the single "red" return and verify that it leaks. It's not shown in the drawing, but we have a sitting...

    Ideal plumbing for laminars

    Thanks - yes deck jets and will have automation. No other features - just laminars and returns. I need to learn more about what all the automation system with VS pump can do. If it’s plumbed like jimmythegreek suggests, then wondering if automation can have different settings/scenes for...

    Ideal plumbing for laminars

    Planning a 22’x44’ build with saltwater chlorine generator and VS pump .75-3hp. Going to include 3 Pentair laminars and curious if there is benefit to adding an additional pump to drive them? Thinking it would be nice to be able to control their flow and turn them down if it’s windy so the...
