I am about to redo all of my above ground plumbing but I cannot figure out what these two lines go to. They both are only connected to themselves and one has no valve on it while the one in the second picture has a valve where they connect. Please help.image.jpgimage.jpg

Welcome to TFP.

If you create your signature with details of your pool and equipment and post detailed pics of your equipment pad and pool maybe someone will see something like an In-Floor Cleaning System that was eliminated that could explain the extra pipes.

Otherwise you can open up the valve and see if there is water in those lines and blow air through the lines and see if bubbles come out anyplace. There are pipe tracers that can be put down a pipe and the location mapped from the surface.

Otherwise your guess is as good as ours.

No way for us to know, but it appears to me the pad has already been reconfigured by someone before you.. I suspect a heater was removed or added, but that is just a guess.

Show us some more pics... from further back..

Thanks,

Jim R.

Sorry for the delayed response. Here is a pic of the pipes in question they are all connecting. There is a Venturi at the lowest point on the right and it appears as the part with the valve is a bypass of the Venturi.0EC947CB-7EF6-4968-A1A0-777EDC56B160.jpeg

Nice work.. Show us the same pic without the red ink, so we can see the pipes.

Thanks,

Jim R.

A venturi is typically associated with a spa air line. But it would not be buried. Post a close up pic of the venturi.

That sort of looks like a spa hartford loop. Do you have a spa? You still have not created your signature.

Sorry I meant to post one of both with and without lines. I added my signature as well. I’m doing all this work to add a 1.5 HP CircuPool VS pump, 225 sqft CircuPool cartridge filter and an RJ 30 plus SWG. And I want all the piping to no longer look like spaghetti. They appear to be running to the pool and not the spa.

What does the black tube connected to the venturi go to?

Was there ever an ozonator?

Honestly your guess would be as good as mine. We moved into the house back in May and what you see is exactly how it has been since we moved in. The black Tube was not even visible until I was about 1foot deep. Sorry if that is not helpful. The person who did all of this plumbing and set up loved PVC fittings....

Now is the time to rip all that junk out of there and replumb the equipment pad... I know it is more work, but you will be much happier in the end.

Thanks,

Jim R.

James, attached is the picture of all the above ground equipment.
Jim, yessir that had been the plan. Just confirming that I don’t need a lot of that extra piping, I’m going for simple clean looking plumbing.

I suspect that there was an ozonator at one point.

Time for a complete system renovation and replumb.
