I have a 15 foot or maybe 16 foot doughboy above ground pool with a 1hp pump and 1 1/2 hard plumbing.
I want to put a solar heater on the roof of my shed next to the pool. I see two different methods online, I am choosing to go with PVC painted black mainly because its trouble free. However, I do I supply it? I see many people divert the entire flow to the solar collector, and others put in Tees.
I was going to use Tees and 1' or 3/4' and divert only a portion of water flow however, I can divert it all, but would going from 1 1/2 to 1 inch wear out my pump faster?
