I am planning in updating my pump and also add an aqua-rite chlorinator. Since my old pipes were designed very poorly by the previous owner, i also decided to also change the layout of them. I am replacing the valves. But, before I continue I wanted to make sure that the pipe diameter I am planning in using is the correct one.
28k kidney shape pool
S. Cal location
40k Aqua-rite chlorinator
4048 Pentair d.E. Filter
Pentair 011018 IntelliFlo variable speed
1 ½ copper lines underground (cannot be change)
option 1: 2 inch lines for both in and out.
Option 2: Keep the in 2 inches. And the out 1 ½ .
I am in a budget so I do not know if going 2 inches in and out will be all that efficient. Specially, since i will mainly be running the pump at very low speeds.
I am looking to save about 100.00 if i keep option 2. Is it worth it going this route?
