I bought a Hayward Power-Flo LX SP1580, 1HP pump. The sand filter is on the pad, but nothing is connected to the pool.
The skimmer suction line is PVC from the skimmer at the far end of the pool down to the cement pad where the pump and filter go. The cement pad is right next to the return port on the pool itself.
I can't find the hoses that the previous owners used, so I'll have to get new ones.
Do I use hose? or PVC pipes?
I have some pics:
The suction is a 2" pipe
The return is 1 1/2"
The suction from the skimmer opens to a bigger joint
The whole setup (without the pump)
