Hello everyone, great site here. I have spent a long time lurking at all the information and have used alot of it in the installation of our 18 ABG. We sank it in the ground 16" It turned out great. I have a couple of queations thought. First one is how far away can I mount my pump and filter from my pool? My pump looks to be a one horse older(I got the pool used for free) vacuzzi pump. I have it set up next to the pool now and it is really moving the water around. I would like to move the pump and filter to the side of the house. Actually there is a part B to this question, what would be my best bet to get the water up to the second story roof to run through solar panels? Would I need a bigger pump? Booster?
My second questions is has anyone actually mounted their solar cover under the wooden deck? Most ABG solar reels roll from the middle. I was wondering if I could roll it from the one end. I would have to lengthed the straps that attach the cover to the reel occordinly so the cover would roll in straight. I hope I explained that good enough to get some ideas.
Thanks so much for the info I have already used and I am anxiously awaiting some replies back.
