    Plumbing/Equipment replacement questions

    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?

    THANKS

    You can add fittings and turns however you need to get things to fit. Ideally you want a few as possible and I would stick to 2" or larger pipe/fittings. But the extra turns will only have a minor affect on the flow rate.

    You could save the valve by using a larger coupler "glued" onto the outside of the valve toward the pump, then a reduce in that coupler and the 2" pipe to the pump.

    Thanks JBLIZZLE, on the 2" fittings, would I then just use reducers into the existing lines into the ground (so use 2" for the pipe and fittings I install, then reduce into the existing lines I connect to)?

    That is correct. If the pipe going into the current pipe is 1.5", then a 2"coupler will fit over the valve. If the pipe is 2", then you will have to find a 2.5"coupler which are a little more work to find.

    I am pretty sure that those are the 1.5"-2" model since they are going into a PE/P2 series pump with no reducers. You should be able to put a 2" coupling on the outside of the valve and plumb from there.
