    Head Question?

    I am planning on updating my equipment. My pooI gets a lot of tree and yard debris. I want to get 3/4 HP 1.65 service factor full rated AO Smith dual speed pump, Pantaire quad DE 100 filter, large leaf cannister for white shark vacuum cleaner and Intellichlor IC 60. I also want to move my equipment about 30 feet away from existing spot which is about 30 feet from the pool now. My pool is plumed with 1.5 inch pipes. Would i benefit from replumming my pipes to a larger size? if so what size should I go with. Thanks, Kris

    There is no reason to dig up and replace all the pipe, headloss on straight pipe is not much. Your flow rate will increase by using 2" for anything new you add ... mostly in all the turns on the new equipment pad.
