Thread: Number of Skimmers/Returns?

    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).
    Questions:
    Is 1 skimmer enough?
    How many returns?
    How many drains and where should they be located?

    Re: Number of Skimmers/Returns?

    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.
