Last year we had two PBs out to discuss a new in-ground pool, and I soon realized that I wanted to be better informed before proceeding. So please help me on my quest to learn more.
Both builders identified the same spot near our house for the equipment pad. It seemed logical because it's close to where the rooftop solar will be. However, it just occurred to me that this location is about 18" below the pool water level. What are the implications of placing the equipment below WL?
The best above WL location would add about 80' (roundtrip) to the solar run.
