Question on Pentair Intellifo 011018 Piping Specification
Question: In the Pentair Intellifo 011018 owner’s manual, under the “Piping installation” section, it says “Do not install 90° elbows directly into pump inlet or outlet.” This instruction is a bit ambiguous / not clear enough. I have 12 full inches of straight run into the inlet (suction) side of the pump, which is the critical side for priming purposes. However, on the outlet side (vertical), I intend to use a 2” threaded male adaptor with a slip fit for interfacing my glue-style PVC into. My existing plumbing configuration requires the use of a 90 degree fitting directly onto the threaded male adaptor, so
[img]Does anyone know how critical it to follow the instruction in the Pentair manual? They don’t specify how long the straight run of pipe needs to be before the use of elbows, valves, etc.
