Can you not use flex pvc and avoid sharp bends? Subtle/gradual turns should not effect your GPH.

i am using soft pvc

but from the skimmer... i was hoping to go to a T where the return line would split to both back corners... where it will then go from a 90 bend to the ball-socket fittings a
'Y" section then to 2 6" adjustables with the spreadind tip

should i reduce down and add some power heads? or increase pump size?
