    Help me blow out the main line with compressor? Its set up as shown but nothings happening.

    Could be but without labels I can't tell which plumbed lines are what. Is the main drain line the line which is plumbed off the tee closest to the front of pump? The lines furthest from the pump are for skimmers? If so then you have those valves setup correctly. That said you have a secondary...

    Help me blow out the main line with compressor? Its set up as shown but nothings happening.

    Since the main drain is on the suction side of your circulation system you do not need to pressurize anything beyond the front of the pump. In other words it looks like you should be able to turn the three way valve between pump and filter off so that no air flows beyond it. Then just make sure...

    Running pool equipment with safety cover before closing

    I would still operate the pump a couple hours a day and only have the SWG operate if chlorine levels drop. If FC stays consistent no need to add more especially since your cover is preventing chlorine loss from sun. Close the pool once the water temp drops and off you go. Current water...

    Help Winterizing a Caretake In-Floor Cleaner

    I have posted a similar question with regards to winterizing these valves. Regardless which valve you have there are a number of ports which feed a branch of cleaner heads. It is probably safe to assume that one of your branches feeds all the cleaner heads in the step. You are likely able to...

    Safety cover install - 3/4" diamond bit

    I know. I have some. Just means the anchors are not nearly as 'hidden' during pool season.

    Safety cover install - 3/4" diamond bit

    Well that's some great info - thanks. I am going to look for a cross bit next time I am at a hardware store. Have considered sanding the ridge on an anchor to prevent chipping when tamping them. What do you bevel the concrete with?

    Safety cover install - 3/4" diamond bit

    FWIW - this was my own pool so was trying hard to keep the construction process and final result "near perfect'. It was also an opportunity to practice using a different installation technique. That said, I could not find anywhere that would rent me a core drill. Ghost town. So I installed with...

    Does this plumbing arrangement make sense?

    So the next question is...what the heck is going to happen when this persons VS is running at full speed and they decide to kick the Tristar on? Old fashion football team versus firefighters tug-o-war? It honestly seems like a science experiment. Will there be any repercussions to either pump?

    Does this plumbing arrangement make sense?

    I know. Originally the pool only had one single speed pump. That has been replaced with a variable speed Superpump. My assumption is that they did not know how to program (Hayward OmniLogic) the VS pump to satisfy the heater and salt system with the deck jets and waterfall so they added another...

    Does this plumbing arrangement make sense?

    Okay. Thanks Jim. I just kept picturing the two dogs from Lady and the Tramp fighting over the same piece of spaghetti. Water, like spaghetti, should not get pulled in two different directions?

    Winterizing a Caretaker 5 in-floor cleaning system

    Hi folks. I am going to be closing a pool with a Caretaker 5 cleaning system which I have not winterized previously. I am trying to determine what the best course of action is to winterize the lines which run from the unit to the pool. I am under the impression that I can individually blow out...

    Does this plumbing arrangement make sense?

    Sorry, should have grabbed an image while I was there but didn't. Closed a pool which had an equipment overhaul sometime this spring. This was the suction side setup and I am not sure if this contravenes common plumbing practice. There are two lines (skimmer and main drain) which feed suction...

    Rheem/Raypak heater with high limit 2 fault

    Nobody able to confirm this? Going to replace it anyway just hoping I am barking up the right tree.
