My pool is going to be installed on a graded slope, with the high part of the slope being towards the house. My plan is to have the pool installed at the best possible location, and then having the filter and pump installed closer to the house (about 20 ft. away.) I have a deck that sits up about 14' off of the ground, and was going to have a GCFI outlet installed on the wall under the deck and have the equipment there as well. (The deck that is currently there will not be tied to the pool - it's too high up. We are going to build an additional deck around the pool.)
Anyhoo, the pump is going to end up being higher, or the same level as the water in the pool. I know that I need a self priming pump, but what would be recommended for this application? Do I need to plan on upping the HP a little to compensate for the head loss? The pool package that I'm currently looking at includes a Pentair Dynamo 1HP self-priming pump. Will this work?
