 ==== ====Anything & everything to do with Swimming Pools, clothes, equipment & toys. Check this site out!http://www.abercrombie1.com ==== ====Many swimming pools have old inefficient equipment that needs to be replaced. If you are thinkingabout replacing the components, it is much easier to overhaul the entire equipment pad at oncerather than piece by piece. With the newer energy efficient components, you can have a quickreturn on investment. The typical lifespan is usually 10 to 15 years with periodic repairs requiredwithin that time frame. You must first shut off all the power to the control panel. You can now start cutting out the oldpipes and removing the equipment. Remember you can always cut off extra pvc if needed so donot remove more than needed, also do not cut the plumbing flush with the concrete pad. Whenremoving the old plumbing, be sure to note the lines coming thru the pad, you do not want to mixup these, your system will not work and you would have to redo all of your work. If you are goingto replace or relocate the control panel, now would be the time to do so. Now you can start planning the layout of the new equipment. It is best to try a dry fitting with all ofthe pool equipment on the pad. When testing the layout, try design it with the fewest 90 degreeangles as possible, this ensures the greatest amount of flow and efficiency. Be sure to layout thepool equipment in a way that will allow for the proper orientation of the plumbing lines. Once you have figured out the layout you can start installing the new components. Start with thesuction line of the pump. It is recommended that you put unions on all of the individual connectionsso they can be removed if needed. Many installers choose to put in a check valve before the pumpto help with the priming of the pump. Next in line is the pressure line which connects to the intakeof the filter. After the filter comes the additional pieces such as booster pumps, chlorinators orheaters. Make sure to allow time for the glue to dry before running with water. The final step is to install the electrical for the pumps and the control panel. Check the conduit andthe wires; many times the sheathing around the wires degrades due to the elements and age. Nowyou are ready to start up your system and check for any issues. Monitor your energy bill to see thesavings from your hard work. Make sure to research the latest swimming pool equipment before making any decisions on thecomponents. Your pool will use less energy and operate better with the latest technology.  Article Source:
