Planning to order the kit this week. I am trying to make sure I have all my equipment and plumbing figured out before I order.. The pool is 20x40 sports pool.
Pump- 1hp Maxflo XL #SP2307X10 (is that enough for all the returns and a slide? slide will only be going when we have guests)
Filter- Hayward 300lb sand or larger
Dolphin Nautilus Plus or Dolphin Triton
Aqua rite 40 - I am calculating pool to be around 25,000 gallons
Step returns - Is it better to have 1 return on each side of the second step, or run returns the length of the second step with 3 to 4 returns?
Plumb each skimmer separately. Should I install the equalizer pipe since I will not have a main drain?
The returns can I do all those on a loop?
If I can get the plumbing figured out I will draw up a layout for that as well. I am a little nervous about the full length vinyl covered steps and the tight corners. I plan to do 2' corners on the other end of the pool. Pool warehouse says there will be no issues with the liner steps as long as I place sand bags on the steps. I love the looked of liner covered and I am not a fan at all of the inserts. Its one of those things if I do not do the liner steps I will regret it. But if I do the liner steps and have issues I will regret it to... Appreciate all the comments
