Hello everyone. Still new to the forum and this seemed like the most appropriate spot to talk about hoses related to your filter, but forgive me if I have committed the cardinal newbie rule of posting in the wrong place:
(1) Can anyone recommend a specific online site for 1.5 ft backhoses (preferable in custom lengths, but i have to measure and I am probably looking at 150-200 ft) that is durable and will last me a decade? I've seen plenty of the cheap ones and I am not looking to waste my time with that. My local store has 1.5" in the heavy blue material that they said is about $1.50 a sq ft.
(2) Has anyone run PVC pipe for extended lengths such as 150-250 ft in order to slope out the backyard (beyond my fence) into the woods? If so:
(A) how much did it cost you for what length run?
(b) do you directly pipe it into your waste line or do you put a pipe on the ground nearby (I have a pool fence between my pump and the direction it needs to go out) and then still run a heavy duty short backhose between the two
(c) regardless of (b) how do you ensure no freezing of it during winter, do you have to blow it out?
Thanks for your suggestions and feedback.
