I am a first time pool owner. My pool is scheduled to be installed when the weather gets nicer in March or April. Right not we are trying to figure out how we want the deck jets plumbed in. Each one will have a seperate 3/4" ball valve to control the flow. Is it best to plumb them to the existing main pump or add an additional pump just for the jets. The jets require a max flow of 5 gpm at 11 ft head to produce a 10 ft arc.
If we add a pump just for the jets, is it OK to tie the suction of the additional pump to the same spot where the main pump suction is. I was worried that the main pump might starve the additional pump for water.
Thanks in advance for any help.
