I am installing a new Wild Ride pool slide and have a question on water supply. Obviously a dedicated line would be best but my pump is about 30 yards from the slide location on the backside of the well house and trenching around all of that is just not in the cards right now.
So I was thinking about 3 alternate options but I am not familiar with just how much flow is needed or for that matter how much flow each of these options would provide.
1. Use a garden hose. I am not crazy about adding cold well water...
2. Use a garden hose connected to a spigot in my return manifold (I use this spigot to drain the pool currently).
3. Use a Polaris style quick disconnect and connect the slide to the cleaner port that is fed by a booster pump. This would be the easiest to connect and disconnect but I am not sure how much flow I would get out of a pool cleaner line?
