I purchased a CricuPool Si45 SWG (to replace my liquidator) and a Ecotech EZ 1.5 hp motor. My existing equipment pad is very compact.
I do not have enough room to pipe the flow switch and cell. I was thinking of installing the cell vertical. I plan on running 2" PVC from the multi-port valve to the Jandy valve for my cleaner.
I am going to wait until the motor comes in to see if I have enough space under the multi-port valve. If there isn't enough room, I will rotate the filter 90 degrees and replumb the pump discharge also.
I have an opportunity to move the pump/filter base back to get more straight pipe on the suction side of the pump. Is it needed?
Am I missing anything else?
Is it worth the investment to install a flowmeter?
