    Removing Booster Pump

    Just an update, I was finally able to remove the booster pump and now have a new return with pretty good flow. Thanks everyone for your input! Any idea what the piece of PVC in the bottom right hand that just comes out of the ground and is capped off would be?

    Removing Booster Pump

    *Just saw your edit* But just to clarify, no issue having that small of a pipe being plumbed in between 2 larger pipes going back to the pool? *This part was before I saw your edit* I may not fully be understanding, if so I apologize. But wouldn't putting a cap on the port in the pool stop...

    Removing Booster Pump

    Yes, the port in the pool is threaded. So if I plumb it the way I have drawn above, I just need to put a cap on the port in the pool, but drill some holes? Will that keep enough flow so it isn't stagnant and become an algae breeding gound?

    Removing Booster Pump

    Thanks for the response! I was wondering about the stagnant water, and thought that would be an issue. Would connecting the lines here work, red line being new PVC connecting the returns? (sorry for the crude drawing) I figure this would only have a small amount of water going through it, but...

    Removing Booster Pump

    I have read through a few of the other threads about removing a booster pump, and the different options, but every pool is a little different, so wanted to ask about mine. Booster pump is not used anymore as we have a robot. We have been in the house since July 2019, and haven't even turned...

    How Clear is TFP Clear? Let's See (Pics Please).

    This was early morning about 5 days after my first SLAM. Started worrying that my sand filter would never clear the water. Debated getting some clarifier, but decided to give it a few extra days, glad I did.

    How to Bond Pool Water

    That's my thought as well. Kinda surprised there isn't a kit of some sort to drill a hole in a Sfatron ladder at the anchor then have a wire running inside the tubing of the ladder so you could use a Sfatron ladder to bond the water. Either way, I'll just get a new ladder and see if we can sell...

    How to Bond Pool Water

    I just did another test, just to confirm. Had my wife slowly lower the copper into the pool while I wasn't looking and I could tell her right when it hit the water and when she took it back out. She wanted to feel it as well and could tell the exact moment also. with that said, are these the...

    How to Bond Pool Water

    Tried a few years: Held on to the step railing and put cut finger in the pool- could feel the tingle. Wrapped 8gauge bare copper around railing and put finger in water- no tingle. Went back and forth between these 2 a few times, felt tingle with no copper in water, couldn't feel tingle with...

    How to Bond Pool Water

    Thanks for the replies! The light is still there, I just pulled it out during the slam to make sure no algae was hiding behind it. I just took the screw out and left the light slightly pulled out from the niche since it's wiring wasn't long enough to get it all the way to the pool deck. After...

    How to Bond Pool Water

    Bought new house with a pool a year ago. Luckily found this site pretty early on, so we had no issues last year, closing or opening this year. Had to complete our first slam about a week ago because we had gotten lazy but everything is great with that now. Now, onto my concern. When we closed...
