    Pluming overhaul

    Well I finally was able to finish the plumbing overhaul. This weekend I put another 3 way diverter in to control between returns and seat jets. I can now turn one or the other on/off. If I need both I can simply remove the stops and select both..... The noise is no longer there. It had to...

    Pluming overhaul

    Been down for a bit. Back issues and trying to get pool ready for a party. Measurements. Feed from the pump is 1.5 inch in diameter. I do not think it is a design issue. If you look at these pictures you can see the clean area. I think this is where the cavitation was happening on the old...

    Pluming overhaul

    Yes I do. I will measure when I get home or in the AM. I do not think anything is that small but you never know. The PVC is 1 3/4 stepped down to the threaded size and the I may get even smaller inside but I do not think it gets as small as 3/4

    Pluming overhaul

    The noise is loudest at the MP right where the pump feeds it. Awesome to find out I am not alone. I was concerned it was something I did with my overhaul. I suspect it is since I indeed increases flow by replacing a few 90's with 45's and I removed the nature 2 which I considered a...

    Pluming overhaul

    Sorry did not answer thoroughly. Noise happens with any combination until the pressure rises. I will go down a little if I simply select slide but it is still there.

    Pluming overhaul

    Ok here you go. I am planning on replacing the T in the return and seat jets return with a 3way diverter just like the other two. I do not like that I cannot turn off the seat jets without turning off the returns. All pipes labeled in the pictures. The other pipe you ask about is the waste...

    Pluming overhaul

    Multivalve is all new. Pluming cut out unscrewed and removed from filter and replaced with new. Are the gaskets you are talking about the ones between the Multi and the filter? I am not sure if they were replaced. What is the backwash valve you speak of?

    Pluming overhaul

    Will make sure I post a solution if I find one.... It is definitely the in multivalve. At 26 seconds you can hear it the loudest. hat is right where the mic was on my iphone. Could the pump be creating the noise and it travel up through the pluming to the multivalve and be heard there...

    I alway buy them from HD or Lowes. Just get the ones that are the same size all the way you should be fine. Don't get the ones that look smaller in the actual 90.

    Poison ivy? Is there a botanist in the house?

    Best way to kill it. Spray the leaves with dawn dish detergent. Kills it dead fairly quickly. Use it all the time. Just realize that if you react to it you will still react after killing it when cleaning up. The oils are still on the dead parts.

    Second rerturn in my AGP

    If it is a threaded eye for the return just go to home depot and get two threaded 90's and two threaded straights an a length of pipe and just fabricate a return that is lower inside the pool
