WHAT IS THIS PART IN MY POOL DECK CALLED?
i cant find anything on this.
we bought a new house with a nice pool (model home)
in the deck there is the standard skimmer, the filler, and this confusing hole , wich i have never seen.
It has a clear sealed cover on it with 2 locks on the side, you open it up and there is a very fine filter in it, there are 2 pipes in it, one i assume blows water out, one that i believe sucks the water back out of the filter housing in the deck and goes back to the pool. This is activated by a valve on the pump labeled leaf vacuum. Is this for a preasure vacuum like the polaris or something else.
There is no booster pump.
And another question, the pop up cleaners are on the same side of a 2 way jandy valve as the "leaf vacuum" and when i turn the vacuum valve off so the one pump is dirrectly blowing into the pop ups the preassure jumps to 50 psi and the pop ups dont work. Is this a blockage or a problem with the mechanics in that housing?
Il be digging into it tommarow, if any one can please help me out on what this "tube" does or is called, please, let me know.
And how bad is it to rebuild motors, the motor for the water fall grinds real bad and is need of repair or replace.
ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED, THANK YOU
