What would you like to do?
I'm no pool expert but I can do the basic maths. I'd presume the limiting factor on how much water will pass through a pipe is its cross sectional area, and that these are circular pipes. If so, the area of a 1.5 inch diameter pipe is pi x .75 x .75, and of a 2inch diameter pipe is pi x 1 x 1 . So two of the smaller pipes will have a combined area of 1.125pi sq. inches, more than the single bigger pipe at 1pi sq. inches. Answer From A Pool Contractor Two 1.5" pipes into a single 2" line is acceptable for your flow rates. The flow rate will depend more on your pump than the two 1.5" diameter lines. You could add a third, or even more lines and individually isolate them with ball valves so you can adjust the flow from each as per the requirements of the pool.

Yes, BUT your velocity (FPS) would be 16.34 and that may cause water hammering (hydraulic shock waves plus erosion of ferrous and non ferrous metal piping

IF ITS A HOLE PEICE OF RUBBER AND A AUTOMOTIVE HOSE CLAMP IF ITS THE FITTINGS YOU MUST REPLACE ..GO TO ACE YOUR HELPFUL HARDWARE MANS STORE HE WILL TELL YA HOW , IT EASY..GET …THE SIZE FITTINGS YOU WILL NEED ..1 1/2 OR 2 IS THE MOST USED..AND DONT USE THEAD TAPE ON A PLASTIC PUMP..ASK HIM THAT TOO
The price of PVC pipe varies from retailer to retailer. Home depot and Lowes sells most sizes for under three dollars a foot. 4 inch PVC pipe shouldn't cost more than $20 for …a ten foot section.
What schedule pipe?
First cut off pipe even with female fitting. Using a hacksaw blade, cut grooves into remainder of pipe inside fitting. Be careful not to exceed the thickness of the pipe you w…ant removed or you will cut grooves into the hub. Cut the grooves every 1/2" or closer if pipe is less than 3" diameter. Then remove carefully with your sharp chisel being careful not to damage the hub too much. A little "scarring" is okay and will inevitably occur, but be sure not to damage the hub or crack it by hammering too hard. Use 80 or 100 grit sandpaper to smooth the inside of the hub and you are now ready to install a new pipe or fitting. Great solution, but somewhat labor-intensive when dealing with relatively inexpensive material. A quicker fix would be--space permitting--cut pipe off leaving approx. 1" inch exposed old pipe. Put a coupling on the stub and reinstall the original remnant of pipe. If changing to a different setup (i.e., different fittings) proceed the same way, but shorten new installation slightly. On 3" or larger pipe/fittings, flexible clamp-on "couplings" are available--use of one, two, or more in different places will more than pay their way in terms of labor, sweat, and profanity. They also save hours of realignment time due to their flexible nature. BTW, these flexible wonders are also available as reducers!
If water freezes it expands. so if the water on your pipes turn to ice 0c then you are in danger of cracking pipes.
By lead wiping a brass nipple into the lead pipe and then using a F x PVC adapter to the male threads of the brass nipple.
about 10$ per foot ANS 2 You're going to the wrong store if you pay that much. I regularly buy it in Canada for 2.85 per foot.
That depends on how sturdy it needs to be. One inch is a good size for most things.
Could be a drain for the inducer motor if it has one and it depends do you have a a/c coil on your furnace if so it could be a drain for it.
You can get this in the plumbing department of your Home Depot: 47950 Grand River Ave / Novi, MI 48374 / (248)347-6746
If the line is outside, sloping will prevent the risk of freezing/braking if there is not water in the line! Inside, it just prevents risk of drips and bacteria growing in wha…t could be stagnant water.
Put an adapter between them. You can't transform it, you can replace it or change it at some point to 2 inch and continue with 2 inch.
About 0.35 cubic feet or about 2.6 gallons.
