    Waterfall Woes

    Spent most of my sunday on this , here's what I appear to have discovered. Drain king'd the path to the water fall outlet and to the return to the pool, both had flow.

    Waterfall Woes

    Apologies to all , everything was opened last time I worked on this. Since then I closed the system down which is why the diverter and discharge lines are closed ( I pour non-tox antifreeze in the lines as a preventative.

    Waterfall Woes

    Thanks for the reply.. So if I properly digested everything you said here there is an obstruction on the discharge side that is preventing the pump from priming ? Since there are 3 discharge points not sure how all 3 could be clogged ? You don't there is a is suction side leak preventing...

In fact our contractor said to me "You have waay too many tools" and I have some crazy large channel locks myself, but I'm not sure how they would get a bit on the rounded edges , unless you'res are so big they fit around the entire filter ( that would be impressive )...

    Pool filter strap

    I have a older hayward cartridge filter and it's becoming nearly impossible to get the retaining strap springy thing ( see pict apologies if that is not the name ) to catch the screw threads when putting the filter back together after some cartridge cleaning. I've lubed it up , but it just never...
