I am in the process of replacing all my pool/spa equipment and would love to add something like this.
My pool gets ALOT of leaves and small pine needles that fill my pump strainer basket in seconds when I have to vacuum. Tons of leaves (especially during spring opening) and **** causes the basket to fill and I have to run into the house and down into the basement to switch off the pump and then empty the pump basket. This dance is sometimes repeated 5-10 times for a messy vaccum session. Is it feasible to put something like a Multicyclone 12 or 16 BEFORE the pump? All their literature shows the unit to be installed between the pump and the main filter.
