    Pipe size for CompuPool, CircuPool.

    I went to my pad to see where to mount the SWG and noticed my piping is 2". What size pipe are the SWG in the subject line? What are the consequences if they are smaller than 2" (head loss, etc).

    1.5 fits inside and I believe 2 inch fits outside.

    Head loss from a SWG is not a big deal except at the very highest flow rates. Short sections of narrower pipe won't cause a problem.
