We are rebuilding an old pool, which currently has zero plumbing in the walls, concrete, 40x18 ft, 30,000gal. One long wall of the pool is exposed (its on a hill) while the rest is buried. We are thinking two skimmers, opposite corners of the long sides. To minimize digging, we'd like just to excavate one side, so looking for three inlets, two on exposed long wall, and one in middle of short wall deep end (easy access there, hard on shalow end). We'll also put a draing on the bottom, exposed wall, with safety cover. So, 3 in, 3 out. Using a 1.5hp (FR) 2-speed Jandy to pump.
Comments? How deep should inlets be? Any spacing recommendations or guildelines?
