Well I'm giving intex another try. Last pool we had lasted about 2 years,,,, frame rusted out,, liner was never an issue. With the last setup I wired up an outlet for the pump/filter and the saltwater generator. It always made me uncomfortable having the electric so close to the pool. There was a couple times where the GFI actually tripped. So with this setup I relocated the electric and moved the equipment away from the pool. I contracted a guy to dig the trench and run about 25 feet each direction of 1 1/2" PVC to relocate everything. Only debate I had about doing it was if the pump would keep up with the extra distance. Well I can tell you it's not an issue. Doubt I've lost any pressure. Here is the setup.
I rigged up a PVC spigot for the return line. I especially like the ambiance it creates. I also rigged up a spigot extension that slips in place to direct the return water straight into the pool for the splash factor. Also giving the extension a little angle starts the water rotation,,, seems to help the skimmer. I'm really proud of the plumbing work,,, I'm no plumbing. I just got a ViSA that gets me in the door at Home Depot. So far It's been flawless from the initial power up.
