    How would you plumb this pool?

    Extensive pool remodel underway. All decking has been removed and plumbing is about to be replaced. 2" going back in. There are 4 return jets in the pool (ABCD) and 5 jets in the spa. The jet loop on the spa is NOT being replaced, but the plumbing to and from the spa will be (2"). Also looking at 3 sheer descent waterfalls (12", 18", 12") coming off an 18" tall wall behind jets A,B, and C.

    Will be running everything off one pump to start off, but was reading a thread today that suggested running the plumbing so that an additional pump could be added later- great idea!

    So, if you were plumbing this pool, and wanted to set it up to add a second pump at a later date, how would you do it?

    Each grid is 2' and there is a main drain that isn't on the diagram.

    Is the skimmer existing? With counterclockwise rotation I think it will work fine.

    Run one line to returns abcd from the pad. Run one line for your water features from the pad. Then in the future you only have to cut plumbing at the pad to add an additional pump. You will need to add a suction line to supply water to the feature pump.
