I am setting up an intex pool for the summer. The issue is the distance from the pump to the pool. I know I can't use an extension cord but what is the maximum feet I can use pipes for water movement? Can I run 20 feet of PVC from the pump to the pool?

I know the best option is to get an outlet near the pool.

Also I am not using the pump the came with the pool I got a 3000 GPH sand pump.

Yes. Water can be pumped efficiently if on level ground.
