    Is this normal? Seepage at penetration.

    Question on plumbing for pool spa

    Ie. 2” spa return and drain. PB is telling me to run pentair VSF at full speed to power 8 jets. 160gpm max/ 8 jets=20gpm thru 2” pipe to a 1.5” outlet in the spa. My understanding was max velocity for 2” is 8gpm flow, 6gpm return. What am I missing

    Question on plumbing for pool spa

    Reached out to the PB and mentioned the jets would produce 15-17 when the pump is at full speed(max pump speed /8 jets). If full speed exceeds the ft per sec numbers above. What am I or he missing? I would assume max velocity is max velocity... ie do not exceed it as the suction would have to...

    Question on plumbing for pool spa

    Approx 33,000 gallon pool with integrated infinity edge spa. Looking to see if the pump/plumbing will be enough for the spa and pool. I know it is all 2” piping and intelliflo VSF pump. From what I’ve read, each jet has a flow rate 10-15 gpm, but the 2” pipe doesn’t seem to support that...

    Pool dug in wrong spot

    Apparently good compaction soil is what they told me (I do believe this). They fillled, tamped and then clean cut the edge w the excavator. They used their bobcat and one of those vibrating tamping machines (person pushing around like a lawnmower). I do know they were doing this section all...

    Pool dug in wrong spot

    Yes. They admitted it and attempted to fix it. The backfill was dirt compacted in lifts... this is today, no rain.

    Pool dug in wrong spot

    This was the side they compacted in 8” lifts and then came home today and they sprayed it with something and it was falling in on itself.

    Pool dug in wrong spot

    No. Where it’s located I can not install a pavilion behind the shallow end... too close to stairwell.

    Pool dug in wrong spot

    Gunite. For argument sake, the pool was supposed to be dug 18’ from the corner of the house, They only dug it 9’. They are now going to have to dig out another 9’ over over in into the dirt and frame up and pour a wall in what is now the center of the pool. I’m assuming form the wall and...
