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.
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.
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.
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.
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....
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.
