I have to replace a return pump. I am thinking about a Dolphin AS2700 (1.5" outlet) or a BlueLine HD70(1" outlet). The return water will go through a short run of 1" hose and into a UV
stelilzer and out to 1" hose. It will then be split an reduced to 3/4" hose that rises about 4 feet to the returns.
I like Dolphin pumps and their service. Howver, should i consdider the BL since the outlet is 1" and the reduction will be less dramatic? Or does it not really matter.
I do not want more than about 1,350 gph
to go through the UV
. This will give me about 3X per hour turnover through the UV
