Thread: Straight pipe run to pump

    Straight pipe run to pump

    I am installing my pump for my new pool. Local code requires 4x the diameter pipe of straight run into the suction side of the pump. My question is whether a praher union would count as straight run. My pad is small and it would be nice if the space the union takes would go towards my straight run

    Do you have a link to the code?

    I would think that, as long as the water is going straight, the total length counts.

    However, I'm not sure. You're probably going to need to check with the inspector.
