    making a endless pool?

    I am having a 28x14 inground pool installed (half done). I am thinking its going to be way to small to swim laps, so could I valve off 3 of the 4 returns and swim against the one 2" returns? The pump is going to be a starite var speed. I have seen the pumps that endpool sell to bolt to the deck but they are 7500.

    A swim tether is a whole lot simpler.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    It would be closing 3 valves, I just dont know if the pressure would be there.

    The best thing to do would be to either add several more returns one that end or move all the returns to one end.

    It's flow volume, not pressure that you need.
