    Pump House Location

    Is there a limit on how far your pump equipment can be from the Pool? I have 2 locations to choose from. The more desirable location is about 50-60 feet from the pool and the less desirable spot is a little bit closer. Is it just about figuring the feet of head in the system and picking the right pump and pipe size, or is there another consideration I am not seeing.
    Pool not built yet: 15K gal, IG Concrete/Tile, Perimeter Edge, Balance Tank, Diamond Kleen Filter, SWG, spec'd so far.

    Use bigger pipe and the distance will not matter too much. The larger pipe will lower the head more than the extra distance will add.

    On a run of 50-60 feet, the increased resistance will make VERY little difference. As jblizzle says, size the pipe correctly and you'll have no problems.
