    Parallel return lines

    I've noticed talk about running "parallel lines" in some threads, especially ones regarding pump hydraulics. What exactly does it mean? Is it just another way of saying running "seperate return lines" from the pump?

    Thanks

    Yes, separate return lines. Some pools have a single pipe running from the pump to several different returns. Other pools have one pipe per return running all the way from the pump to the returns.
