Thanks, just measured and everything looks spot on so far.Rocky home! I am guessing they are done digging. It is time for your first job for your pool. Go out there with a tape measure and the plans. Is it wide, deep, long, etc enough??? Add about 8" for the steel, shell, and plaster. NOW is the time to fix or tweak as needed.
You need to decide how you handle Builder advice different then ours. There will be a lot of it I think.They shot the shell today. Looks like a pool! Asked the builder if I needed to water it, he said no. It seems the best practice is to water it, but should I follow my builders instructions for warranty purposes?
You never want to stop the water coming from the filter. That will stop your flow and damage your system.I do have a bone to pick about the heater bypass valve. With this plumbing I cannot stop the water going to the heater bypass. I can only stop the water going to the heater or coming from the filter. Any plumbing experts available to pass on their input before I bug the pool people again. Thank you.
NICE! Do the Dad thing! We will be here when you are ready!Birth of our daughter has taken up my pool write up time.
There is no fixed inlet in the 3 way valve. Remove the screws on the top of the valve and reposition it so the inlet is properly positioned and you can move the valve between closing the heater inlet or the heater bypass line.In the current configuration. If am running the heater (normal operation") the valve is also "open" to the bypass pipe. I can shut off the heater pipe, but not the bypass. I don't know how much flow I am losing to the heater given the water is flowing to both the heater and the heater by pass. The "inlet" is now the heater bypass pipe, 3 way valves don't allow you to turn off the inlet.
