    What is the bottom made with?

    The plumbing should only be stubbed with 1-1/2" pipes and the main runs with two inch to the equipment pad. I would use 2"-2/-1/2" Jandy valves, two two inch unions, and a size up one level on the sand filter. I would have preferred to see Pentair or Jandy gear used, especially if it's 2" plumbing as an S244 is 1-1/2" inch and the internal up pipe can crack. I have had problems with Hayward's offerings in the past though I do like the Super Pump for many applications. The use of a CL220 feeder and that you have a low powered two speed may be an issue on low speed. The water's velocity on low speeds and tablet feeders in general is poor performance. Yours fits that mold unfortunately. A salt cell or the use of 3/4HP single speed pump will solve that issue.

    The Pool School section will teach you. Take it and take it seriously.

    Thanks PoolGuy

    The pool bottom will be vermiculite.

    I will look into moving up one level on the filter. And I do plan on going with a salt cell most likely.

    Thanks again!
