I just had a new Jandy Valve and Challenger pump installed.
The previous installation had no elbows from the Jandy Valve to the pump intake and 1 90 degree elbow on the pump output side to connect the pump to to the diverter valve.
The new installation has 4 90 degree elbows from the Jandy valve to the Pump intake and 3 90 degree and 3 45 degree elbows to connect from the pump to the diverter valve.
There was room to install a PVC coupling in the pipes coming out of the ground and make the installation only use 1 90 degree elbow like the previous installation.
From what I understand you want to minimize the number of 90 degree turns in a system.
Is this ok or should I try to get them to correct it.
