Notice the green water. Yeah. I really screwed this up.
Here's my presentation on how many ways I screwed up.
Big Time Screwed Up Pool Project
First Option: Add back the old skimmer/inlet to use with vacuum
- Install old skimmer back in and have connect to other outflow and both flow to pump. Have switch so can have both open or just the one. Will that even work?
- This would solve the problem of current vacuum not working because of not having a good seal. Hopefully we still have the old inlet and thing that draped over the side the vacuum attached to.
- But now we have this sticking into the pool which honestly I thought was more annoying then our new pool ladder because it was up by the net. (Volleyball net) Now I want to say for the record I really REALLY like our new pool ladder but Pat detests it. I mean he really doesn't like it. And I think it made it look more like an in ground pool myself. Sigh...
- OK so this would require cutting another hole, and probably would have to use PVC for these extra connections. BUT I don’t know about that and I am scared to say.
Second Option: Buy vacuum that doesn’t operate off of pool pump.This is a much more expensive solution BUT much easier. If it works!
Third Option: Take pool down and clean it.
Last Problem: Is this Salt Water Chlorine Generator going to work with this pump?
- I hope we’re just low on salt.
- I probably need to buy the stupid salt testing strips that cost $18! (Good example of cutting off your nose to spite your face.)
- If they show that indeed we are at 3000 ppm or higher than why does it keep saying low salt. Is my pump idea valid?
