My 27' round AGP will be installed next Wed (sorry I wussed out and hired someone) and I have a question about filter/pump placement.
Naturally most people have them right next to the pool and can and may have to do that for money reasons but I am also considering putting into an old metal shed that I have in my yard.
This shed is probably a solid 30-40 feet from the pool location. Shed is all metal and in good shape (full of junk that needs to be tossed of course) and has a wooden floor in it.
Pump/Filter combo is a Waterco T450 and 2HP pump.
Should I put this in the shed and run hard 2" PVC underground from it to the pool. Is the distance too far?
EDIT -- Adding the Happy Bottom question.
Is there an acceptable alternative to Happy Bottom? We want to use this but no one stocks it they all have at least a 7-10 day lead time then they need to ship to us. Installer is coming Wednesday.
I know there is Gorilla Pad but that is more of a weed barrier then a "padding".
The installer will be putting down a layer of sand of course (packed down and not sure how thick) but I would like some nice cushioning on the bottom for our feet.
Any good & safe options that I can get in time for the Wed install?
