 I just installed a HeatPro heat pump model HP21404T that I purchased from you. After installing, I noticed a significant lost of suction and pressure lost at the return jets. Is it possible that my Sta-Rite 1 hp pump and 24" sand filter is now to small with the added pipe? I ran roughly 14' of 1.5" pipe to the heat pump. Thinking I should of ran 2" instead. I don't believe I'm going to have the GPM now for the heat pump. Any help would be appreciated.

It's possible that the 1HP pump is now too small. Have you run the heat pump to see if it has enough flow?

Ok. I'll start it up this weekend and let you know.

Problem solved. The impeller was getting built up with debris in the pump. Heat pump is working great.
