Installing Replacement Pool Pump
I am planning to replace my current pool pump with a variable speed pump, however the new pump is longer than the current model. I need an additional 6-8 inches to move the pump away from the house but the suction line from the ground has no slack. I am wondering if I can dig down about two feet in the ground at the suction line and use 45 degree ells to move the suction line the 6-8 inches out from my house so the pump will fit? Will this cause me problems? I do not want to use 90 degree ells since this would obstruct water flow and force the pump to work harder than the two 45 degree ells.
