    Pool leak help

    Completed the 24 hour tests with both pump running, and turned off, both leaked about 2 1/2" over 24 hours. Bought plugs for all of the jets, plugged them up and same thing after 24 hours. I went around the pool using food coloring, the skimmer, pool light, jets (and around the pool itself)...

    Possible pool leak, multiport crackling, and air in skimmer when pump stopped

    After doing the bucket test, it seems there is definitely some kind of leak in my pool, but the very odd thing is that it appears to be random when this happens. I can go a full week or two without losing much of any water, and then a week or two where it loses water much more than the bucket...

    Pentair Intelliflo Variable Speed Drive/Control Panel Issues

    Andddddd..... just to make matters even worse now, I purchased a second controller, installed it and it worked great for a week or two ... then last night I came home, turned off the power to the pool pump, came back out, turned it on, made a loud thump ... and now the controller will no longer...

    Pentair Intelliflo VS-3050 dilemma - unresponsive keypad

    Unfortunately I wasn't able to repair it because that would require a lot more desoldering than I was interested in doing, due to the fact that they basically sealed the entire other side of the PCB electronics to the outside housing ... which makes them sound even more horrible for not adding...

    Help Me Figure out 1980s Pool Plumbing Setup

    Thanks for the response. I was pretty sure I was right about the spa seat jets, and funny enough I actually did order a boroscope a few days ago so it should be here *hopefully* by this weekend and then I can check it out.

    Pentair Intelliflo VS-3050 dilemma - unresponsive keypad

    I don't have that specific model, but I do have a Pentair Intelliflo Variable Speed Pump which appears to have the same type of controller, and I can tell you that at least on mine, the keypad is removable/replaceable. Reason I know this is because my pump being less than a year old, somehow...

    Help Me Figure out 1980s Pool Plumbing Setup

    Hey guys, recently my pool pump controller went out on me (only 8 months old Pentair...), which made me start thinking about how they actually plumbed my pool back in the 1980's when they built it, and I was hoping someone may be able to help me to figure a few things out. Full Size Image...

    Pentair Intelliflo Variable Speed Drive/Control Panel Issues

    The horrible part about all this as well, is that it says on their website the pump is still under warranty ... that is of course, only if it's registered in the first 60 or 90 days or whatever ... what a horrible way to do business!

    Pentair Intelliflo Variable Speed Drive/Control Panel Issues

    Yeah i've already dried it out and made sure everything is dry no problems. Checked the box for the pump and sure enough the date on it is 08/2015 .... so first that makes me wonder if Pentair is selling pumps with old motors, as the motor is def over a year older than the controller. Like I...

    Pentair Intelliflo Variable Speed Drive/Control Panel Issues

    Well ... long story short, I have a Pentair Intelliflo Variable Speed pump that was working great until just recently. From my understanding the pump was installed sometime last year by the previous home owner, pump has manufacture date of May 2014, controller says 08/04/2015. The pump would...

    Keep diving board with insurance company in Florida?

    Alright so i originally had Northern Capital Insurance and they went bankrupt. My policy expires the end of this month...does anybody know any Florida insurance companies that will still cover you if you have a diving board? Northern capital was the only one i was able to find and now each...

    Leak from skimmer, what is this other pipe for?

    It must have a bypass then because the pump still works whenever the water level is below the skimmer

    Leak from skimmer, what is this other pipe for?

    So i'm confused now...does the drain from the bottom T somewhere underground, one pipe leading to the skimmer and one to the pump? And if there's no water in the skimmer it only pulls from the bottom? I don't see why there are two pipes in the skimmer then?

    Leak from skimmer, what is this other pipe for?

    Yeah if you look at the top of the picture there is two pipes and a hose running between them. There was a booster pump there (still is but it leaks), so i just used the flex pipe to bypass the booster pump. I was thinking about cutting the 1/2" pipe where it splits from the 2" pipe into a...

    Leak from skimmer, what is this other pipe for?

    You can't really see it in the picture but at the bottom of it there is just basically a pipe that comes out with a valve on it and it's just an open pipe at the end. Should i just open the valve to see if water comes out? What would it show if there was water flow when water level is normal...

    Leak from skimmer, what is this other pipe for?

    It's difficult to say because of how far away the pump is from the pool but i would say that it's either at level or below. I guess i just need to pay someone the $200-300 to come out and find the leak for me, pool is green again already and im tried of spending so much money on cleaning the...

    Leak from skimmer, what is this other pipe for?

    Here's my pool setup. There's the drain at the bottom of the pool and the skimmer. There must be a T underground because i cannot set it to pull from just the skimmer or from just the bottom. There is only one pipe that comes out of the ground by the pool pump. Now, my pool definitely has a...

    New pool light. Go with SAm or Intellibrite?

    Well i called Pentair and told them the old light i had in their and they said the intellibrite "should" fit. I don't really know how to tell what type of niche i have...lets hope it's the right one! We will find out tomorrow!

    Hayward Star Clear II Filter PSI 30+?

    Yeah she just needs cleaning...seems about after 30 psi is when water flow starts to slow down. Just a lot of cleaning :D

    New pool light. Go with SAm or Intellibrite?

    Well Intellibrite is how i went, ended up spending $440 on it as someone else clearly wanted it pretty bad. It's new though so i dont have to worry about it not working. Should be here on tuesday, i'm excited :D

    Hayward Star Clear II Filter PSI 30+?

    Yes it is a cartridge filter, here's a picture of it: How old is it...not really sure, it was the only part i was able to salvage whenever i purchased the home. So does a cartridge filter just suck the water through the filter and then any debris, etc dont get pushed back into the pool? and...
