Hey guys, unique situation here, as I am putting up an above ground pool, but running PVC piping in-ground to have the pump and filter mounted near the garage... I am putting up a 27' x 54" AGP.
Basically will have 2" PVC in-ground, 73ft away from the equipment. Dual runs of 2" PVC (one for suction, one for return). I am planning on running a Sta-Rite sand filter (model T-210WF) to start, but will probably go with either a cartridge or DE filter eventually. I already have the sand filter.
I am burying the PVC 1.5-2ft in the ground. I plan on coming up by the pool and using flexPVC to plumb from the risers to the pool. Planning on only 1 skimmer/suction to start and going with just a single return to start. I may switch that to multiple skimmers/returns in the future, but to start just singles.
So, I have 73ft of suction PVC, 2 sweep 90s going to the risers (one by the pump, one by the pool) and then the 2ft or so going up to the pump or flexPVC going to the pool.
Now, am I looking at over 90ft of total head loss???
As far as pump I figure I will probably need an in-ground pump, since above ground pumps don't expect too much head loss at all, or what?
