I have 3 Vortex 4' x 12' Solar Panels with 1.5" heads & 2" Plumbing parts that I want to install. All of my current pipes are 1.5" and I believe I ordered 1.5" plumbing too but they sent me 2" and this was last year. Regardless, I will work with what I have. My question is... is it worth getting these professionally installed or DYI? I'm leaning towards DYI since the plumbing doesn't seem that complicated. I assume I am ok with 1.5" to 2" converters wherever needed...
Also as an aside, I also want to install LED strips around the pool. Do you recommend getting Waterproof LED strips and installing them under the water or above? Not sure what would look better... thinking all underwater.
