Thread: Number of Skimmers/Returns?

  1. #1

    Number of Skimmers/Returns?

    I have a new 38" Leisure Morroccan Fiberglass pool (38x16 max depth 6') going in beginning Saturday. I "had" a plan until the deal with the 1st PB fell through and I ended up with only fiberglass shell sitting on the surface in my yard. The # two PB will begin installation with a dig on Saturday.

    There are 3 Pal Treo lights going in. The equipment is all Pentair (VS pump, C&C Plus, EasyTouch with IC40).
    Is 1 skimmer enough?
    How many returns?
    How many drains and where should they be located?

    One skimmer is fine. Three returns would be enough. One drain would be enough unless code requires two. My dad has a 18 x 36 8' deep with this exact set up and it work good.
