I need help. I purchased a house with a 4 year old pool ( 30K gal). First thing I did was convert to salt but now I feel that for whatever reason the main suction line might have gunk over the years from either neglect or inadequate suction or debris that is lying in the pipe to the pump. Its about a 30 foot run.
I would like to somehow either blow out the **** or remove it ( assuming its there). I had thought about adding a nipple somehow and forcing air backwards to the pool's two drain ports but there are two sharp right angle 1 1/2 pipe right angles right off of the Hayward value and no room to mess with it.
How can I flush the main line? I brush debris (dust mostly from the Texas high winds) over the suction drains and it just sits there and laughs at me despite the fact that I have the valve all the way to bottom suction. I just bought a vacuum line to go via the above ground filter to get the immediate bottom fodder but the fact of the matter is that the main return flow is still constricted.
I don,t want to bypass any threads with important thoughts on the matter but if anyone has legitimate response to my issue. Please feel free to post here and send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a method of clearing my lines.
