    Pump and fitting

    Hi everyone Im Rafy I'm new in the forum and i live in Texas.

    I have a 14x36 ,Fiberglas in-ground pool ( 14,000 gal) that has 2" piping on the suction and return side. I bought a new pump (Hayward super pump) to replace the old one.
    This new pump came with 1 1/2 intake and output fittings. Can I adapt this pump to my suction and return pipe? Do I need to return this pump and get another one?*What will be the down rage On this?
    Advice will be appreciated..

    Thank you...

    Welcome to TFP!

    Your pump will be just fine. You simply need to use an adapter to convert to 1 1/2" pipes close to the pump. The short sections of 1 1/2" pipe will have only a very tiny effect, so that overall the system will behave very nearly as if it was 2" pipe throughout.

    Re: Pump and fitting

    It's nice to have unions so the pump can be serviced but you likely need something like this to reduce the 2" pipe down to something that will screw into the pump. Just make sure they are the right threads.

    Re: Pump and fitting

    Yep, definitely heading in the right direction.

    By the by, the threaded to slip adapter at the bottom of your picture is fine, but I prefer to use a section of threaded CPVC pipe instead. You buy a "CPVC Nipple" and cut it in half to get the section you need. CPVC is much more heat resistant. It is possible for the pump to overheat, and a short piece of CPVC will prevent that from causing problems with the plumbing melting. Overheating is quite rare, so this is hardly critical, just my preference.

    Re: Pump and fitting

    Great!!! I will work on this today. It is amazing that in just five emails I can get advice on how to do it, plus the suggestion on parts. I went to places that are expert on swimming pool and they make this almost impossible, more like suggest that I need to hire a pluming guy. I'm not expert in pluming, however I know I can do it with some guidance.
    Thanks all for yours advice, and suggestion. I will let you know how goes will.

    Re: Pump and fitting

    Well the job is done, and look like is ok... Thank you everyone for your input and advise.
    I've being trying to upload pictures to all see the job done however no results were shown in uploading.

    Now, my sand filter shows 22.5 psi. Is this normal? I have a new pump, Hayward SuperPump, new pipes, and I backwashed the sand filter about a month ago. My question is, did i do something wrong? Would I have to fix something?

    P.s. All the pipes from the pool to the pump to the filter are 1 1/2 inch. I will try to upload pictures later.

    There is no normal for filter PSI. It is different for every pool. You are within the normal range, if perhaps towards the higher end of the that range.

    Yup,
    we know..... they typically are no better at testing your pool water and getting the right chemicals in it either.

    There some good pool stores here and there, but few and far between.

    Hi Rafy,
    for some reasons, your links to the pics are invalid, and we can't see them.


    if you didnt use photobucket, it might be because you are over the allowable limit to post pics directly through the forum.

    just thought I would let you know.
