I am laying out the plumbing spec for my new 30,000 gal in-ground pool (no spa). Will have 2 skimmers each with separate 2" back to pad, dual bottom drain with 2" back to pad, and 4 returns each with 2" back to pad... and cleaner return port. I will be using an Intelliflo for my main pump.
My questions are:
1) I assume it would still be best to have a separate pump for waterfall, slide & cleaner, or can I run them off of the main pump since I have the variable speed pump?
2) Assuming the answer to #1 is that i could do it, but it would be best to have a separate pump (s):
a) Should I have one pump for Polaris and another for waterfall/slide?
b) Where do these separate pumps get their water? From suction side of main pump or from separate inlets in pool?
c) Do I need SVRS devices on each pump or just on the main suction pipe at pool?
