If it stops raining, I'm going to try to get the new pump plumbed it today. The replacement connector piece I ordered came in so I should be ready to go with it.The cell can be installed either way. If you have a
variable speed pump we recommend the cell (I think they meant wire since that is what I asked about) be coming out from the
underneath side of the cell.
I had a contractor friend say that all construction was just a bunch of errors nailed together and covered with flashing... Yeah. there are always adjustments you have to make when actually building it out. I wondered if it was possible to turn your filter 90 degrees and scoot it up to take out some of the extra 90's.. but this will work. I think you can build a little strut out of your extra PVC to support the run with the SWG cell instead of the 2x4s and I would use pavers under the pump to raise it or at least pressure treated 2x4s.I don't think I've gotten any two pipes to come together the way I intended.
Thanks for the advice. I get what you mean. I will have to replace those 2x4's someday, but I expect to get a couple of seasons out of them.I'd still replace those 2x4s with something that won't rot.
Yeah, I think it would have been. I thought about it, but wasn't sure I could figure out a way to move the filter by myself. Short of trying to remove the sand first, of course. When I started I felt like there was a benefit to knowing that the previous plumbing had lined up with it in this orientation. Probably, though, I should have considered moving the filter more... next time.I wondered if it was possible to turn your filter 90 degrees and scoot it up to take out some of the extra 90's
