I just purchased a Pentair IC40. I know the couplings on the cell are 2". However, my pipe is 1-1/2. Will putting a 1-1/2 to 2 inch adapter into the inlet of the cell and reducing it back down coming out of the cell cause any problems with flow(or any other problems)?
Also, it says in the manual that the cell should installed on a straight run of pipe 12-18 inches. I have a straight run 18 inches, but the cell will cut out most of that. My question is; does the cell count in the 12-18 inch straight run or is that before the cell?
If the cell does not count, i am going to have to reconfigure my piping, unless it is not really a big deal to begin with.
