Pool Equipment Installation Reviews 2

Pool equipment installation reviews page 2
While you would hope that major flaws and deficiencies with pool equipment installation would be rare the unfortunate reality is that it is extremely common. This is the result of an unregulated industry and a lack of national or international codes for how pool equipment should be installed. Even though equipment manufacturers provide installation instructions as you can see from this video review series it is very commom to have problems that are not "wrong" so much as you could say that they could (and perhaps should) be better.

This equipment review video shows a pump and filter that were leaking for a long period of time which caused the wooden floor in the pump room to become rotten and eventually break resulting in the pump and filter falling through the floor onto the ground below the floor. Here are more reasons why you should never ignore a pool leak.

Nylon pipe fittings were used in the pool and spa industry a few decades ago. Unfortunately nylon is reactive to chlorine and as a result all nylon fittings in service are sure to become a leak point eventually - if you have nylon fittings like these on your pool then you need to consider replacing your plumbing and eliminating these known leak points. Also shown in this video is a DE filter (diatomaceous earth). This article discusses the types of pool pipes to use when plumbing a swimming pool.

Review of a swimming pool equipment installation that includes a brand new heater that does not have a check valve in between the salt cell and the heater. Also shown is a very old Hayward sand filter and street elbow flow restrictions. Read more on installing a pool heater and the importance of using a check valve with a salt cell.

This is the equipment installation for a very old concrete pool which was originally plumbed with copper pipe. Any copper pipe used on a swimming pool will certainly fail due to corrosion from exposure to chlorine and pH fluctuations combined with the damaging effects of galvanic corrosion. This system also features an offline erosion feeder complete with a check valve in between the heater and the chlorinator. See what using copper pipes can do to a pool in this article about why pool water turns green.

This pool equipment installation review covers a system with a nature 2 colloidal silver injection system and an inline chlorinator (brominator). Also detailed is the difference between street elbows versus sweep elbows as they relate to the flow dynamics of the system. You can learn more about salt water generating systems here and how to choose one.

Basecrete flexible bondcoat

I can not stress enough the importance of using a waterproofing solution for concrete swimming pools. When it comes to the technical process of waterproofing concrete pools Basecrete is the most effective product that I know of. I strongly endorse the use of Basecrete products to all concrete pool owners.
