I spoke to the PB. They will be doing the deck jets later. They will have their own pumps.jnorris said:Whatever you do, talk to the PB ASAP...ours forgot about the deck jets, and we didn't catch it until after the deck had been done. Now our "deck" jets are "yard" jets! Ours run off the same pump as the rest of the pool, with a valve that we can open or shut to direct water to them.
Well, you could run them without having to run the main pump, but other than that, I don't think it much matters. The deck jets will take very little flow away from your filter circulation.maxsrents said:Our PB just informed us that our deck jets will not have their own pumps. Is this a problem? What are the benefits of the jets having their own pumps?
Ours do just fine on the main pump with everything else. We have a 2 speed pump, and we do have to run it on high, simply because our &(#@^&$ pool builder forgot to put them in the pool deck, so they actually about 5 feet outside the edge of the pool. But if we have the pump on high, and cut off the valves to the bubblers we have in the steps and the swim out, we can actually shoot water all the way across the pool to the deck on the OTHER side! My husband enjoys surprising our guests with a little shot of water!maxsrents said:Our PB just informed us that our deck jets will not have their own pumps. Is this a problem?
