I leveled out an area in my back yard and have a 12 foot above ground pool ready to go and then realized that I am not supposed to use an extension cord. I was going to have a GFCI plug ran out the the back corner of my back yard, but then I though about running some pvc pipe underground for about 30-40 feet to keep the pump close to the hose and an existing GFCI plug. I was only concerned it I would have any suction problems that would overwork the pump. The pump I have is 1,500 gph and it would be nice to have it away from the pool anyway. It would be a lot cheaper to run pvc myself as opposed to having an electrician run a new circuit from the box and underground too.
Thanks for any help!
