Well after weeks(it seems longer) they finally got the pool installed and its filling as we speak. I had already done the electric and seems like the return/skimmer is farther away then I feel it should of been located. I bought 9' hoses to help but the return is stretched out pretty good and im not okay with it. I am
gonna go ahead and just hard pipe it as I have worked with schedule 40 enough to know a thing or 2. I am curious if I should go with 2" though as most seem to mention it. It's only gonna be about 12-15' of pipe. it slopes down about a foot in its travel towards the pool. I just don't want to bog down my pump by oversizing the pipe either. I will obviously have some means of disconnect on the pump side but is it recommended on the pool side also?
