    Pool pump / pool return question

    Will a 1.5 hp vs pentair pump run 3 pool returns and with 1.5" piling and run a water feature I plan to make with 1.5" piping then that one split off to have 2 water jets plus the 1.5" forward flow.

    The drain that comes from the pool is 1.5 inch as well?

    If it's 2" you could do what I did. I made a 2 inch manifold and connected to each return pipe which were 1.5 inch. I have six returns which are really three because they are two from each 1.5 inch pipe. And I also have a small water feature which is 1". The 1.5hp pump is more than enough even with a heatpump
