    Hard Plumbing Advice

    Hi Everyone,

    Here's what I have:
    - Waterway Clearwater II with 1 1/2" MPT x 1 1/2" Male Smooth Hose adapter
    - Rheem R266 with 2" x 2 1/2" water connections
    - Skimmer and return are 1 1/2"

    The plan is to install a heater bypass and hard plumb all the connections. Should I use 1 1/2" or 2" Sched 40 PVC for all plumbing?
    10,400 Gallons AGP - Installed 5/2/16, Waterway Clearwater II Cartridge Swimming Pool Filter, Malibu 2 Speed 1.5hp Pump, K-2006, Rheem P-M266
