    Air in the system causing aeration at the returns - Ideas on locating the source?

    Thanks. I have been pretty careful and this last one lasted for about 4 years but I got a new employee that helps to tend to the pool and ... I will be sure to cover that with them. Still, at $40 a whack and x4, it's exceeding it's value.

    Air in the system causing aeration at the returns - Ideas on locating the source?

    Just did the water hose test and it's the stupid Hayward Super Pump II lid. It has a crack in it again. This is the third one in 9 years. I will likely replace that wet end of the pump soon just to get away from these $40 lid replacements. I'll order another one. Thank you to everyone for your...

    Need creative ideas for underground plumbing repair

    Air in the system causing aeration at the returns - Ideas on locating the source?

    Good suggestion. I just went there and read. I feel like this is more than from the SWG because the pump basket never fills completely with water like it has before. I have decided to replace the o-rings in the Unions. I just recently made changes to the plumbing and had to open those unions...

    Homebrewale, did you intend to include a link in your reply? I don't know the technique you are referring to.

    Air in the system causing aeration at the returns - Ideas on locating the source?

    If memory serves, air in the system is from a leak in the intake side before the pump. That leaves two skimmers, main drain and all the connecting plumbing before the pump as suspect. I have unions on all three of those lines and I suspect those first. I lubed up the o-rings thoroughly but it...

    Can you identify this Spa Jet so I can replace it please?

    I just recently remodeled my 1983 vintage pool with spillover spa. Everything is nice and new ...except for the spa jets. I am trying to replace them now but I can't tell what to buy for replacement. I realize I can go find an adjustable spanner wrench to get this off but honestly I am a bit...

    We are an IT company and buy a lot of supplies and resale. I also got over three grand back on my Costco check for much the same reason. :-)
