19x35 ~30,000gal grecian in-ground
main drain (deep end)
all the in-ground piping is 1.5" flexible pvc from what I can see
equipment pad is maybe 6' on a diagonal from the pool itself (not far at all)
1.5hp Hayward superpump (1 speed, 230v) on a timer
chlorine, no salt
I just purchased the house and along with it came the pool, a huge plus in my eyes. The filter is an old sand one and the multivalve went just prior to closing it this last year. To the point in which a whole new unit is necessary and not just a gasket (housing is cracked on the inside). I an upgrading to a Hayward DE4820 DE filter and getting the new mutlivalve to go with it. I wondering if upgrading all the above ground piping to 2" worth the effort?? Now its not that I'm lazy...far from it. I just always over think everything and I would rather do it right now when I have to redo everything that wish I had done it. It's not really a cost issue either. Just wanted to confirm all my reading on going with more flow, less pump.
