We are new pool owners and are now wishing we had pushed harder for a different pump location. Not only is it an eyesore it is also making drainage difficult. We ultimately do not want a retaining wall and landscaped this way.
My question is, with my current pump, a 1hp Hayward, will it be too taxing on the pump to move it back and up to the back of my fence or close? The vertical rise would be about 10ft from the bottom of the pool, and an additional 25/30ft back.
What would you do?
