How To Install A Water Jet In Above Ground Pool? [Solved!]

Spread the love

Installing a water jet in your above ground pool is a great way to enjoy both the pool and the water feature without the hassles of keeping it clean! You can also vary the depth of the water by adjusting the height of the jets, which makes this a versatile option for different parts of the pool! Let’s get started, shall we?

Attach The Hose

The first step is to attach the hose to the faucet that is closest to the pool’s edge. You don’t need a special adapter for this because all faucets will work just fine with any garden hose! You should also check with your local plumbing supply store to see if they have any suggestions for the best type of hose to use. The type of nozzle you will need will depend on the size of your pool; the larger the pool the longer the nozzle will be, so you will need to go for a longer hose!

Attach The Diverter Valve

The next step is to attach the diverter valve to the end of the hose. This is the device that controls the flow of water from the faucet and allows you to regulate how much water is coming out. Depending on how much space you have above ground, you might want to consider using multiple valves so you can shut off the water at the source when you don’t need it!

Install The Pump

Once you have the hose and the valve connected you can start installing the pump. This is the part that will generate the pressure that lets the water flow through. You can find a suitable submersible pool pump at most hardware stores. Make sure that the size and the horsepower of the pump you buy are compatible with your pool!

You can also find a water pump with a timer that will turn itself on and off automatically so you don’t have to keep checking up on it! This is especially convenient if you are not comfortable with doing plumbing tasks yourself. This will also help minimize the electricity bill because the pump will only run when it is needed and will turn itself off when the water level goes down.

The last thing you need to do before you enjoy your new water feature is to connect the pipe to the valve. This is the part that connects the container (i.e. pool) to the faucet. Make sure that you tighten it snugly so there are no leaks when you test it!

Create The Right Layout

When you put together the layout for your pool area it is important to take into consideration how you will use it. Where will you position the pool? Where will you place the deck and the seating area, if any? Where will you put the steps? How much space do you have for the plumbing fixtures? Are there any special considerations due to where the pool is located (e.g. due to nearby structures)?

Once you have your layout planned out you can move around the pool freely and check if everything fits properly. You can also adjust the layout a few times before you settle for it, so long as you don’t mind getting dirty! Don’t expect to move the pool simply because you don’t like the layout of the deck or the house or the space where the pool is positioned — there will always be something interfering with the position of the pool, so long as you live in a house!

Enjoy Your New Water Feature

After all that hard work it is time to enjoy your new water feature! In order to do this you need to ensure that the area is safe for swimming. This means that the pool needs to be at least four feet deep; you also want to make sure that the edges are stable so they will not collapse under the weight of anyone jumping or diving in! Make sure to always keep up with the maintenance of the pool area and the surrounding structures as well — they will require a lot of TLC (i.e. “tank wash” or “hose cleaning”)!

There, now you can enjoy your new luxury pool area! It doesn’t matter if you are in a house or an apartment; as long as you have a yard you can put a pool in it! You can use this guide to help you along the way, or if you need additional help, you can always contact a professional plumber.
