Please bear with me . . . I'm posting this on behalf of my husband, so I may not get all the technical pool words right.
It's time for us to replace our pool pump. We'd like to go for one of the new energy-efficient pumps, but most of them have 2-inch pipes. Our current plumbing is 1 1/2 inch pipes. Is it safe for the pump and the plumbing to go from 2 inches down to 1 1/2? We really don't want to have to replumb the whole pool! This is a standard-size inground pool (20 x 60). I can provide more info (c/o the hubby) if this isn't specific enough.
Thanks in advance!
