I am about to replace my pump and filter after having refinished my pool. I have purchased the new filter (Hayward DE4820), new pump (Hayward MaxFlo VS), and multiport valve. The area with the equipment I currently have is kind of tight, and I believe I'll need to do some reconfiguration to fit the new equipment.
First question I have is about the plumbing lines. Assuming I need some additional room, I may need to add 90 degree elbows and some additional piping running to and from the Pump. Is there any issue in doing this? (adding 90 degree elbows or the like)?
Here's the layout:
Due to the way the current pump was attached to the Jandy intake port, I think I may need to replace the Valve?

Since there's not a lot of room between the intake piping and where the pump is currently, I was considering moving the pump off to the right and using a 90 degree coming off the jandy intake to the pump input. (to allow more room). Does this sound reasonable, or is there a better way to go about this?
