Maximum length of pipe and main drain question

Postby eric136 » Thu 11 Sep, 2008 22:12

I'm in the planning stage of my 16' X 32' inground pool. I want to put the pump and filter approx. 85 to 95 feet away from the pool. The pool builder said this wouldn't be a problem as long as I used 2" pipe. I wanted to know if anyone had an opinion on this and if I should use a main drain. I was going to use an automatic (robot) cleaner so I wouldn't have to install and maintain a main drain.

Thanks, Eric
