    Need help on solar panels on my Intex 12 by 24

    I was wondering if my 2650 intex pump would be able to run four solar panels on my roof. The pump is about 10 ft away from the roof plus 8 ft to the top of my roof. All of my pool plumbing is 2 in hard pipe with a added skimmer. So i currently have two intakes and one return. Any help will be great thank you

    I just tried adding a three foot section of pipe from the return and the pump was able to keep same amount of water going though at the same psi. I pointed the pipe straight up in the air Does this help

    you need to calculate/figure the head pressure, horizontal pressure would be OK, its the vertical pressure that gets you
