Is it possible to purchase just the insert part of this as a replacement?

A  Answered on 1/18/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

There is no replacement part for that and you would need to replace the whole unit.

I'm losing my prime on pump. How far from the suction side inlet should I place a check valve? Most of the line is under concrete, I only have about a foot of line to access. Will that work?

A  Answered on 3/20/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Bill - The check valve can be installed within a few inches of the intake of the pump. A foot of pipe will be sufficient for the check valve install.
