Winterize Pool With Unions

 How To Winterize Your Pool With Unions

One of the toughest parts about winterizing your swimming pool is the actual time and effort it takes to disassemble your pool equipment. Removing unions, unscrewing fittings, moving equipment around – it all seems like one big project. But what if you could help winterize your pool with unions?

Have you ever thought about what you could do to speed up this process? Seriously, how can you make it easier for you and your family to close your pool and reopen it again in the spring?

Unlike new pool owners,  most of us can’t change a lot about our current equipment set up. In turn, we wanted to provide a list of ideas and union pieces that can potentially make winterizing your pool easier.  (more…)

Product Battle Series: Pentair WhisperFlo Vs. Hayward Super II Vs. PureLine Prime

Out of the Hayward Super II, the Pentair WhisperFlo, and the PureLine Prime, which pump is better? If these pumps were in a battle, which one do you think would reign supreme? There are many variables you have to consider before attempting to answer that question. Comparing the pump’s specs and the performance curves against one another is one thing, but getting an inside perspective and comments from people who have either serviced or owned the pump is another. In my opinion, both should be considered before making a purchase.

One of the most beneficial tools we have at INYO Pools is our customer service team. They all come from different backgrounds within the pool industry and their experience provides unique points of view to any pool situation. They each have agreed to provide an unfiltered opinion on each pump and hopefully  shed light on things customers might not be aware of.

To help customers determine which pump is best for their pool, we’re putting the Hayward Super II, the PureLine Prime, and the Pentair WhisperFlo pumps in a head- to- head battle against one another. Not only have we compiled all the information you can find online about these pumps,but we also have inside reviews from customers and our staff as well.

To help gather information, we emailed hundreds of customers requesting their help. We received hundreds back from customers all over the United States. Overall, I think you will be surprised by the comments we received.

Troubleshooting Pureline Prime’s 2 Green Century Motor

The PureLine Prime Pump is one of our newest, premiere pumps that rivals top brands like Hayward and Pentair. The PureLine Prime is paired with  A.O Smith’s 2 Green premium efficiency motor which has an integrated timer that allows for a much smoother and simpler install. Since the motor is the only electrical component within the pump, it is typically the part that will sustain the most wear and tear. And with any moving part, you’re bound to run into some issues at one point.

Century’s 2 Green integrated electronics control the power supply to the motor. The user is responsible for setting either the Timer Mode of Manual Mode to operate the pump. In short, the user has to program when they want the motor to start and stop High and Low speeds. If either setting has a user error, an error screen will appear and prompt immediate action. Between wear and tear and user error, there are a few things that pool owners can encounter along the way.  (more…)
