    1.5in to 2in transition

    Hi,

    My new pump and filter have 2in connections. My existing return and pump lines are 1.5in flex pipe. Should I transition to 2in right where they come out of the ground, or as close to the pump and filter as possible?

    Thanks,
    Rick

    I'd do it closer to the ground. The larger internal diameter elbows will flow better.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
