Unused cleaner line

Posted by mudn (My Page) on

My PB put in a cleaner line for future use if needed. The line is currently capped at the equipment pad but open in the pool. She I plug this line at the pool end too? Will some place like Leslie's have a cap for it? The fitting in the pool has threads.

RE: Unused cleaner line

You should of plumbed it into your suction, this would allow you to vac the pool if needed.

If you use it or not you want to install a vac-loc cover over it. Leslies sells these.
Bad thing is the stuff that will grow in the stagnant line.

RE: Unused cleaner line

Well, no need to hook it up if you don't have a suction side cleaner or don't intend to get one. If you do have/or intend to have one, then hooking it to the system will be a convenient thing.

If you don't intend to use it just now, the threads should be a standard 1.5" PVC connection and any type PVC screw-in fitting from Home Depot/Lowe's will work.
