PSC Ep. 90: Do I need a timer for my salt system?

  1. Hello,
    I read your article about common low pressure problems. I have not seen my particular issue addressed in that article or through my internet research. My issue is I have three returns but only one seems to being working normally. Water just trickles out of the other two. Two returns are fed from one pipe and the other return (the one that is working) is fed by another pipe. There is a valve or diverter that controls the returns. When I turn the valve to direct water to the two returns, I don’t see any noticeable change in the water output. When I direct the water to the one return, it works very well. What do you think is the problem? Thank you.

    1. I would hazard a guess to say the one pipe feeding two returns is the problem. You kind of already figured it out, the pipe that feeds one return works fine, then the pipe that splits its output to two returns has low pressure when both are opened.

      If you want those other lines to work, you can put a valve on the single pipe and return line to throttle back its flow, which will, in turn, push more flow to the other two.
