    Can I move my pump and filter this far?

    Can I move my pump and filter from the side of the pool to the rear. The pool is an Intex 16x32 ultra frame. I am changing over the pump to a Hayward 1hp and a sand filter with Hayward thru wall skimmer. Intex has the pump next to the pool and I would like to hide it around the back side about 15 or so feet from were the intex pump is currently . The piping will be a combo of rigid pvc and flex hose due to this being a ultra frame. The pipe size is 1.5.

    That should be fine, especially with the 1 HP pump. The smaller Intex pumps would not be able to handle that.
