    Does this piping look okay?

    Hello - just had the pool equipment installed on a new pool build. They obviously did not try to lay the piping out ahead of time. Notice the angles going into th pump. I don't think this meets pentair's recommendation of coming straight into the pump at least 5 times the diameter. These are 2 inch pipes. If pad would have been 6 or 8 inches deeper, they would have had more room to deal with lining the filter, pump and swg better.

    How concerned should I be? Makes me wonder about piping I did not get to see around the pool.

    Plumbing is hardly every perfect. What we see in the photos is reasonably well done, better than average in my opinion.

    The double bend in front of the pump is not ideal, but it is also unlikely to cause any obvious problems.
