Our inground pool and spa have 2.5 inch suction lines and 2 inch return lines, but the suction lines reduce down to 2 inches in two places and I'm wondering if there is any good reason for it. The pool and spa suction lines connect to a 3-way valve, which in turn connects to the pump inlet. The pipe between the 3-way valve and the pump is only 2 inch diameter. Also, there is a 2.5 inch to 2 inch reducer where the pool suction line connects to the 3-way valve, but the spa suction line connects to the 3-way valve with 2.5 inch pipe. Is there a good plumbing reason why the suction line would be reduced half an inch in diameter in these two places during the last foot before the pump? If not, would changing these two reductions to 2.5 inch pipe improve the system efficiency much?
