    Correct plumbing on my pool?

    I have 15x40 foot sports pool, 15,000 gallons

    1 skimmer, 2 main drains
    2 returns

    All above using 1.5 inch pvc coming into the valves, Then switches after the valves to 2 inches to the 1.5hp 220v pump into the 350lb 75gpm sand filter, into pool heater then switches back to 1.5inches after the valves back to the pool.

    Is this sufficient plumbing?

    It should be fine. I don't know why they didn't stick with 1.5 connections for the equipment but switching to 2.0 shouldn't cause much difference. Are you having issues with circulation?

    Nope just wondering from reading all the forums. Just wondering if the 1.5 inch pvc is sufficient enough.

    1.5 inch main and 1.5 inch skimmer into the jandy valve out 2inc into pump,filter heater, makes sense to me.

    Just wanna make sure everything is suffiecient, reading the forums too much, lol
