    Plumbing planning

    I'm trying to determine plumbing layout and requirements, please help

    There will be 3 returns down 1 side of the pool, should they all be individual 2" runs to the pump pad?

    2 steps jets in the steps at both ends, can each pair be tied together and ran 2' back to pad?

    2 Skimmers opposite side of returns, 2"run each back to pad?

    2 deck jets, thinking these both need to run all the way back so we can adjust if needed? 1 1/2" or 2"?

    Planning on using Savi Melody lights, looks like they need 1 1/2" run each back to pad.

    Anyway to guess on how much piping and fittings are needed?

    What size pool are we talking about? Note there have been some reliability concerns posted about the Savi brand lights, I would suggest searching on the topic.

    Seems like the Jandy nicheless and Globrites have poor reviews as well

    I don't really have anything to add but just wondered if you've started your build?
