AGP to be installed tomorrow. 1.5 HP Hayward Power Pro Matrix, single speed pump. Initially planned on putting skimmer and return on SW end to hide it and electric was wired accordingly. Now thanks to TFP, I know the skimmer should be placed according to prevailing winds which means SE corner. That would make a run of approx. 15 feet from pump/filter. I've bought supplies to hard plumb with 1.5" pipe but may have to use flex hose initially.
From reading here, this doesn't seem too far but the pool store said it needed to be withing 6' which is why I placed my electric where I did. Any advice?
