    Houston, or thereabouts, we have a problem

    I just tried to answer a post 2X that is wrongly in the 'Suggestion' area about abandoning an in floor cleaning system and switching to a suction side cleaner ---- however, I can't respond in that area - Can Sean or one of the mods move it and include my initial reply?

    I'll put in my second attempt at responding :

    Hi and welcome to TFP!!

    I am a little reluctant to advise someone to abandon a system which has ~ 20 +/- holes in the floor with no good way to plug them However, if you would tell us how many regular (wall) returns you have and what suction ports you have (skimmer(s) MD (there ought be a MD!), perhaps a designated vac port - I may be able to come up with something - also what are the pump and filter sizes and styles? What may be happening is that the screen/ filter inside your actuator valve is clogged and/ or the springs on the pop ups have deteriorated. I'm certified to work on Caretaker 99 systems, now Polaris, but I think they all work the same. If you'd let us know a little more about the setup of your pool and system, we'll work out what good advise we can proffer {-for Dave :P -}

    I'm here almost daily and will keep my 'eye' on this question and help you all I can Again, welcome to TFP
    Thanks - Ted
