Hi all, 1st post,
I just ordered a Saltwater 8000 15 foot pool with the following: Hayward 1HP 2 speed cartridge filter, Hayward Aquatrol SWG. Plans are to install the pool with perlite backfill, foam base, pool cove, and liner pad under the 25 mil liner.
Being a newbie I know nothing about pool plumbing, but would like to install the pool equipment about 40 feet away from the pool. Is this a bad idea?
If installed this way should I oversize the pipe and fittings to allow for pressure drop?
I searched and cannot find plumbing diagrams showing recommended valves, etc. If someone could point me to one it would be much appreciated.
BTW I also plan to order one of the recommended test kits and follow the recommended methods for startup and maintainance.
