I've got my pool build going in a separate thread and am getting more subs lined up for plumbing and decking right now. I need some help with a good pump. I'd like to stick with a Intelliflo or Whisperflo. I need some advice on size and model# of pump. The basic specs of the pool are roughly 33000 gallons, 2 skimmers, main drain, 6 returns. Suction plumbing is 2" and return lines are 1 1/2" but the loop will be 2". The length of the return loop is approximately 140'. I also need a separate pump to run some water features. I'll have a total length of sheer waterfall of 42" requiring 42 gpm minimum and 4 deck jets requiring 4.4 gpm each for a total of 17.6. Total water feature GPM needed is about 60 GPM. So...
What filter pump would you recommend?
What water feature pump would you recommend?
I'm still debating about sand vs. cartridge filters too...
Thanks for any input.
