  1. The history as I know it. It’s an olddd Sylvan Pool. Not an Anthony & Sylvan pool. This pool is gunite, 2 skimmers located on the right of pool. Each skimmer has a return line directly under it. Only 1 drain at deep end and the deep end is roughly 11ft. She holds 30,000 gallons. She’s free form and has port between the 2 skimmers for a cleaner. It was using a D.E FIlter but we converted it to sand when we purchased. Now for the uh ohhh’s. 1.)We have a missing junction box. That’s my big issue. As I have the light sitting on the deck. We aren’t using it but we had a licensed electrician disconnect the light. It is the only light to the pool. No other features have been located. Thank God! We’ve been digging holes all day. The switch to turn on the light is in the pool shed with the pump and filter but no idea where the junction box is (see picture below). Now I’m a smart lady so I called the electrician and he came out but the electrician couldn’t find it and said call a pool contractor. The pool contractor said “I dunno, you should call an electrician.” but we can get you an estimate on a new pool. Ugh..So back to digging holes. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. The pictures are the condition we got in. I’ll upload how it looks now later today. The plumbing is mostly the same. Picture below is looking at pool from pool shed/shallow end. Light is on the deep end. 2.)Where can I find the diverted valve or must we replace the whole skimmer? And yes we’re saving for a complete remodel but we bought the house that Mr. I Know A LIttle About A Lit built so slow and steady is the only way to go! Thanks for any suggestions!
