    Solar Plumbing Questions...Quick and Simple

    I'm finally getting around to building the rack for my panels.

    My question is, would it be ok to have the inlet to the panel being a longer run than the outlet side?
    Or should I reverse that?

    Does it even matter?

    I know the outlet side of the panels needs to be higher than the inlet.

    Right now because of the slope of where the rack is, it's easier to have the outlet side closest to the pool.
    I can switch it around by using blocks and paver stones if needed.

    What say the experts here?
    Intex 15' X 48" metal frame pool
    Waterway Supreme 1hp 2 Speed pump
    Hayward X-Stream 150 Sq. Ft. Cartridge Filter
    2-2'x20' Sungrabber Solar Panels hooked up in parallel on a Goldline GL-235 controller.

    Not getting "Pool Stored" = Priceless!!!
    Thank you TFP

    Shouldn't matter much if the supply lines or return lines are longer.
