I have done some searches in the forums, and most of the references to using 2" are for inground pools, so I thought I would ask the question, can I use ALL 2" PVC piping and valves for a 24' Above ground pool with a 1.5 HP single speed pump and 22" (60GPM) sand filter?
All the connections on my Pump, filter, skimmer, return fitting, and ozonator are 1-1/2", but my heater is 2"/2-1/2", there is very little cost difference in going from 1-1/2" to 2", but I'll have to reduce to 1-1/2" at each equipment connection (besides the Heater of coarse), My pipe runs will be around 15' to and from the pool into my pool shed. I intend on using Jandy or pentair Neverlube valves.
I have attached my proposed setup.
Which will perform better, 1-1/2" or 2"?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
