Good Morning Everyone!
This site and the members have taught me so much and have saved me a ton of money, thank you!

I have a question regarding a new pump install to existing plumbing. My suction lines are 1.5 in PVC the pump I purchased is a Pentair 011028 which has 2inch pump connections. My question is should I run 2in pvc from the Pump to the suction lines then use a reducer to mate the 2in to 1.5. Or just run 1.5 to the pump with a 2in to 1.5 threaded slip collar. Or does it matter? Thank you everyone in advance.

Welcome to the forum!
Be sure you use Pump Unions on your pump. They must be purchased separately.
Then just reduce to your 1.5in wherever it is easiest.
I suggest you read ABC's of Pool Water Chemistry.
