Ok so I spent yesterday digging a 50 foot 18" deep trench for filtration lines so I could put the filter and pump in an old metal shed I have (man what a ton of work).
Trench has about a 1" layer of fine sand on the bottom and then 2 2" pipes laid in it with properly glued couplers and 90s (trench is an L shape 30' from pool to a right turn and then 15' from there to the shed). Once reviewed by the county I will cover the pipes with more sand and then fill back in with dirt (of course after I verify for leaks).
My question ....
The filter is a Waterco T450 165lb Sand filter with a Waterco Aquarite 2HP pump.
Pool is a 27' Round Above Ground Pool.
Will this pump be able to handle this distance and perform well or do I need something different?
I would also like to add in an SWG system to this as well so please lmk if this would still work with the above equipment
Lastly in your estimation how many hours per day should the pump run?
