Ok I bought a house with a pool a few months ago. It's 12 X 24 about 9000 gallons. I just had it resurfaced with Diamond-brute and had them move equipment outside fence. So I have a vac connection, skimmer and a drain coming from my pool. They run straight from pool about 10 feet turn 90 degrees then go about 15 feet turn 90 degrees then go another 15 feet turn 90 degrees again then go about 6 more feet to the pump. I have a 1 HP pump and cannot get enough suction to be able to skim and have my Hayward Navigator go at the same time. The plumbing used just go from pool then 90 to the equipment. The pool guys added 2 90's and I think that's why I do not have enough suction now. If I hook my Navigator in to the skimmer and shut off vac port and drain that is the only time I can get enough suction to make the Navigator work. Do I need a bigger pump?? Do I need to change plumbing to have only 2 @ 45 degree turns?? What can I do??
