Hello everyone! I am Alan. I have a 1989 24x48 fox vinyl liner pool, 8ft deep end and 3.5 shallow end. I have been told the pool is 44,000 gallons by one company and 47,000 by another. The plumbing is all 1.5 inch pvc. On the suction side there are 2 skimmers and one main drain. On the return: 2 pipes go out and supply 2 stair jets and 1 in each corner of the shallow end wall. I am planning a renovation in late Sept(concrete is in very bad shape and I need a new liner). While I have the pool deck gone and liner out. Should I make changes? I have to keep my pump on 24/7 to keep my pool clear and clean. I have a 500lb sand filter and 1.5hp pump(20ft from a corner of the pool). What should I do to make this pool more efficient? Go to 2inch piping from skimmers to pump and add more returns or 2 inch piping for returns also? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Any other suggestions to help renovation go better or add something important while everything is apart please share.
