    Pump & Filter ?

    How far away from the pool can you set your pump & filter? We have a 1.5hp single speed pump with a sand filter.

    Re: Pump & Filter ?

    There is no one right answer here, but 50+ ft suction side and return side plumbing paths are very common with inground pools.


    p.s. flow restriction over distance can be partly mitigated by using larger diameter pipe
