    Bought house with pool...what am i working with?

    Here are a few pics of equipment. Think there is an SWG in there. Some kind of crontroller. 2 separate pumps i think but not sure why. A big ol filter and a heater not sure if its gas or electric. And a whole lot of pvc pipe.

    Was wondering if anyone could tell me what exactly some of these are and if anything stands out as a piece of junk that ought to be replaced.

    Will post pic of pool with attached Hot tub not sure on dimensions. Water needs a little tender loving care. Pool is only a couple of years old.

    only 3 pics per message more to come shortly

    Yes, can be intimidating. There is a Goldline Aqua-rite swg inline after heater. Is a Goldline Aqua-Logic controller. Can get online manuals at Haywardpoolproducts.com

    Second pump could be for water features or in floor cleaning system.

    Rest of equipment is all Pentairpoolproducts.com
    Whisperflo pumps, 4000 series DE filter, Minimax pool heater.

    Heater looks to be gas, look for gas pipe plumbed to leftside of heater,ankle height.

    Cleaning filter will help in turning the pool around. Plus chemicals

    Looks like a great start (pebble bottom and (mostly!) all Pentair equipment)! Some TLC and that will be a beautiful back yard!

    Congrats

    to my untrained eye, all the equipment and plumbing look to be in great shape. Even the water is not too bad, considering the dark pebble surface! This will be gorgeous once you get your water cleaned up... read here for that: http://www.troublefreepool.com/pool-...efeating_algae

    Congrats on the new pool, and welcome to TFP!

    Welcome to TFP!!

    Looks to be a nice set up

    The one thing the pics don't show is the valve for the filter

    Looks like you had a leak at the motor to pump housing at some point, is it taken care of?

    Thanks for joining us here, you honestly can't go wrong with the good folks here

    Thanks for the quick responses.

    Ill take a look at the valve for the filter and I see what you are talking about with the motor to pump housing. The house is bank owned so they have zero clue about any prior history the pump may have had. So I guess time will tell if there is still an issue. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    The urls above aren't going to the Hayward & Pentair sites. It should be http://haywardnet.com & http://pentairpool.com.
