Integrate Solar Panels
Add new door to garage.
New sound sytem
Move all pool supplies into garage
Shade cover over deep end (kind of a pipe dream at this point)
Old cast iron pump lost all suction (Barracuda wouldn’t even move)
Start cutting with my trusty circular saw and metal blade.
Since the new pipes will be PVC I had to sweat a 1.5’ treaded coupler to the copper output pipe.
Since the suction pipe was 2’ and Home Depot and Lowes didn’t have any 2’ threaded couplers’¦I had to Sweat on a 2-1.5’ Reducer’¦then a 1.5’ section’¦then a 1.5’ threaded. Looks ugly but should be ok when painted to match the other copper pipe.
Everything all plumbed’¦arrow shows section to be cut out for the riser tubes for the solar setup after the summer’¦.Wow it kinda is after the summer already.
The back flush handle was removed as well as the lines to the heater’¦a ball valve was put in at the low point of the system between the pump and filter’¦for pool pump out and system drainage. The pump was moved between the input and output pipes and the filter was moved closer to the system 12’ …allowing a smaller footprint overall.
Started cutting at 6pm…flicked the switch about 1am…thank God for Mountain Dew.
