I am installing a new Hayward TriStar Pump which requres 2" pvc. My current PVC is 1.5", so i am having to put a couple of reducers on to match the size.
In doing so I am running out of room with my skimmer line. My inground pool does not have a main drain and only one skimmer line that leads into the pump. I would like to take off the skimmer supply line valve that leads into the pump. Is there a need for that valve? I dont really see the point since I only have one line running into the pump.
