I am trying to install the new pump again. In the past, I used the terrible piping job that was already present. This time I have plenty of time and want to do it correctly by trying to improve in the way the pipes are aligned.
Do to the limited space in the pool shed I am trying to do the best possible install with what I have.
I have the following equipment.
A) 1.5 copper underground pipes in the return and intakes. Two returns one feeds the pool the other the spa. Three intakes connected to two skimmers and two drains (pool and spa)
B) Pentair variable speed pump
Due to the fact that my intake pipes are not strait and are very close to each other, I think I might need to compromise by capping the spa drain intake in order to install a 3 way valve.
I do not want to do a sloppy job and want to keep my pump at its optimum.
My other my concern is the very short 10 inch distance between my pump intake and the intake pipes.
I will continue with my install based on feedback I receive.
I thank you in advance,
