Have a new Hayward sand filter. The hose for the pump needs to have a 90 degree or elbow barb fitting coming out of the filter. Have tried to attach a pic.
Anyway I was wondering if it would be ok to extend the pump to filter hose from 2 ft. to about 4 ft. Instead of the sharp elbow bend this would allow move of a gentle curve. From what I remember about plumbing this would be better.
And I would not have the difficult problem like I have now with a small leak. Hard to install the elbow barb tight so it does not leak and have it pointing in exactly the right direction. Seems stupid that Hayward would even make their vales like this.
Thanks for any suggestions
