Pool plumbing mixed!

Postby Ti3155 » Mon 22 Feb, 2021 02:24

Hello. So I fired my pool builder due to imperfections and cutting to many corners in order to save money,

After I hired another company to finish my pool I went through the pics and vids and I was shocked to find this picture.

The picture shows the main drain , 1 return line and the 2 skimmers lines were connected with gray conduit, I called him he said "its still scheduled 40 , everybody doing it" , so I start research and couldn't find one single evidence in any other pool worldwide that has been doing that type of connections LOL , why in the hell he did that , I found another video showing where these pipes going and where they stopped , the problem is im not sure how far he extend it but I think its aproximate 4ft gray line (max) was extended with the white pvc (again its not dark gray for water , its light gray for electric) , my question is do I need to cut the deck and find this pipes and replace them with the proper PVC pipe ?
I'm really worried about it .thank you very much for your help
