    One more plumbing puzzle...

    I have had bubbles in the return lines for a few days. They are coming out of the pool and spa return lines fairly consistently except when the system is in high RPM cleaning mode when they seem to disappear. I was convinced I had a suction side air leak and have tried several methods for...

    Replacing Motor Shaft Seal

    Water chemistry is looking great so we finally bit the bullet and fired the pool service. A week later and some investigation into other issues has led me to a leaky Pentair Intelliflo VS pump. I’m pretty sure it’s the Motor Shaft Seal and I have the new parts ready to replace the seal and all...

    Help identifying pool parts...

    Jumping in the deep end

    I just found TFP yesterday and have scoured the forums for information (and courage) in order to jump away from my dependence on a pool service that has been expensive and less than satisfactory (that’s being kind). Part of my reluctance to go it alone has been the worry that if something...
