I am very close to pulling the trigger on a new pump for my AGP, but have a question about the power cord. The outlet is about 12-13 feet from the pool, but the cord is much shorter (6 feet). If I were to move the filter, I would need to move all the way back to the outlet so it isn't in the middle of the walkway to the deck and then deal with the longer plumbing, and either run it behind the stairs or hard plumb and bury it.
Path of least resistance seems to be just get a 12 foot cord and wire it into the pump or get an extension cord and bury that. Anyone see any issues with either of these solutions? Would I be able to get an appropriate cord at a hardware store? What would you do?
