    To plumb or not to plumb

    I have been looking at different threads on hard plumbing pools. I live in a climate which require me to detach my pump and SWG during the winter. I'm trying to figure out if it would be worth it to hard plumb my pool. Can someone give me some pros and cons (biggest being cost) to hard plumbing my 15' AGP?

    PVC will provide greater flow rates than the corrugated hoses.
    Hard PVC is cheaper than flex PVC, but the hard is a little more difficult to install.

    Just put a few unions in the line so you can remove the equipment.
