Another user asked to see this once I got it done, so I'm posting it. Nothing particularly fancy or pretty. I usually link things to be neat, straight and trimmed out but I inherited this equipment and best I can tell when they installed ~12 years ago they just did what was easy. One thing that really bugs me is they cut up the deck to do new plumbing and did 1.5 with just one return, a suction/sweep intake and skimmer. Abandoned bottom drain. I would preferred a setup that could move more water around more of the pool. Anyway, the equipment is out of side, all by itself so I don't have to stare at this. Hence, I got it installed as simply as possible.
A new filter and/or pump are still on the horizon so I will likely clean up the electrical, plumbing and arrangement at that point.

Finally got this done as well so I can work on lowering my TA:
