    Closing pool - questions about chemicals

    Stupid question- If you close the pool early and have a dark cover, (no light really getting in) and you do have some algae growth won't it die off in the winter? Thanks.

    Air going through my pump

    Leak found and repaired. Last homeowner put pucks in the skimmer, ate away the piping. Also flex line used. Not good. All set now.

    Air in pump basket and bubbles from returns....

    Hey all, sorry on the delay. Just been busy at work. Narrowed it down to the my near skimmer. Closed it off and no more air. Had my pool tech use a microphone and found the leak right at the skimmer line where it comes out. I have pavers so easy to dig up. Whoever owned the house must have put...

    Frog went down hole in skimmer

    Same here. Small frog made it to the pump basket and released back into the wild. Seemed ok to me.

    Replaced pool pump tripping breaker

    ajw22 is correct. That breaker is could not feed a 230 v circuit. Something is not correct.

    Need help picking a new pump

    I also have a single speed pump and love my Heyward Super Pump. My last pump lasted over 10 years and I replaced it as preventative maintenance to avoid a breakdown. Hayward W3SP2610X15 Super Inground Pool Pump, 115/230V, 1.5HP

    Thinking of a VS pump. What size?

    Looks like all 3 will do the job. Anyone have a preference good or bad on these 3 motors? Disadvantages/advantages of one over the other? Thanks.

    Thinking of a VS pump. What size?

    Looks like both of the pumps you linked will work for me. Thanks for all that info. I see both will work with 115v and 1.5 inch pipe size. I was worried about dropped 2 inch to 1.5 inch and it choking down the pump.

    Thinking of a VS pump. What size?

    Hey guys, I have a 25K gallon vinyl in ground pool. Right now I have a 1HP Heyward 115v pump/motor with 1.5 inch inlet/outlets. I see the VS seems to be all 2 inch and 230v. Anything that anyone could recommend for me, I don't want to change the voltage. Thanks.

    I need to get a pool vac. Any recommendations?

    What do you with this when you have debris in the deep end?

    I need to get a pool vac. Any recommendations?

    I have the Aquabot Bravo and love it. It picks up every little grain of dirt, sand and leaves. Pick up worms that seem to like to crawl into my pool. It climbs walls to the top, goes up steps. Just amazing. I got it from Aquatic Distributors in Mahwah, NJ.

    I am curious also how did this turn out?

    All new piping and pump at end of the season.

    Thanks. I see a good deal of ball valves being used. Is the problem they don't last?

    All new piping and pump at end of the season.

    Hey again, My piping looks to be original and although not in rough shape I am looking to replace all the above ground 1.5 inch piping. I have a possible suction leak which hopefully this will address. I can get all the 1.5 inch PVC, unions and ball valves at the big box stores but I was...

    Air going through my pump

    Thanks for all the help. I am going to be replacing all the above ground piping at the end of this season and installing a VS pump. I will then go from there. Letting the pump pull from the vacuum port is just a temp solution for now but I do understand what you are saying. I will keep plugging...

    Air going through my pump

    Is it ok to leave it this way until I find what is going on?. I have no kids going into the pool right now.

    Air going through my pump

    I went over every joint, union, valve etc. I used shaving cream. No air leak found. I am a mechanical contractor so experienced with piping. I am wondering if maybe a slight restriction in one of the skimmer lines coming back to the pump and the additional water now is making up for it.

    Air going through my pump

    Correct MK, air in the pump basket. My error. With both skimmers drawing water back I have air in the pump basket. When I open the 1.5 inch vacuum valve, the pump basket fills right up with water. No more air.

    Air going through my pump

    Water level good. Both skimmers seem to be sucking perfectly. I have a 1HP Heyward Super Pump single speed.

    Air going through my pump

    Thanks MK. What do you think about what I had posted about how the air is now gone in the skimmer basket when I started drawing water through the suction side vacuum port? Also besides the entrapment risk is their any other issue with this? Thanks.
