    Is 55' too far from agp for pump?

    I have bought an above ground Doughboy 24'x52" Autumn Breeze pool and it will be installed starting March 27. One thing I keep flip flopping on is the placement of the pool equipment. I would like to put the equipment next to my detached garage and run 2" PVC plumbing to the pool. It looks like the pool water level would be about 18" - 24" above pump suction level. I plan on either a Pentair Optiflo or Dynamo pump, dual speed 1 HP. I would then need to run bonding back to the pump and separate electrical to a different part of a planned deck around the pool. If the equipment is placed near the pool I would like it to go further around the pool and deck and the electrical run to the pump would then be about 100'. The equipment slab would then be on a slightly lower level than the pool bottom.

    So, I guess the major question is whether 55' is too far away to locate the pump. Thanks for your help.

    No, 55' feet of 2" pipe running horizontally is no big deal at all. It'll be fine.

    Thanks. I hoped I could put it by the garage so the GFCI and timer would be inside and the electrical for the pump a short run.
