HAVE 40,000 GAL INGROUND POOL THAT HAS ALWAYS HAD A PROBLEM WITH SUCTION & FILTERING CLEAR. jUST REPALACE SAND IN T244S 300LBS. REPLACE PUMP THIS WEEK, FIRST TRIED TO GO TO 2HP SUPER PUMP BECAUSE POOL PUMO IS UP HILL FR POOL & HAS TWO SKIMMERS BUT PUMP WOULD RUN HOT CUT OFF AFTER 6 HR DUE TO THE LINES ARE TO SMALL 2" IN & 1 1/2" OUT. WAS TOLD I NEEDED 3". SO HAYWARD EXCHANGED 2 HP FOR 1 1/2 HP. POOL WONT **** AT SKIMMERS CANT EVEN USE A HOSE TO VACCUM POOL WITH SKIMMER..NOT ENOUGH SUCKION TO HOLD HOSE IN HOLE. THIS SYSTEM WAS PUT IN 15 YEARS AGO AND HAS NEVER PERFORMED RIGHT! i JUST PUT TWO IN LINE CHECK VALVES IN AT PUMP ON INLET LINES TO HELP HOLD PRIME. I'M THINKING IT HAS WRONG SIZE LINES & PUMP. HELP
You are correct. Your lines are extremely small for this system and the pump is to small for this system. You are going to have to do a total upgrade. from the pump to all the lines. I know this is bad news, but it is a common problem for system that where put in more then 10 years ago
