Pump distance

Currently my pump and filter are as close to the pool as possible, using about a 2-3 foot hose. I'd like to move the pump and filter about 15 feet away from this area and obviously can't turn the above ground pool around. Would it be ok to use a 20 foot hose for both the intake and output? I would like to build a deck where the pump is currently positioned and can't see doing all the maintanance needed by going under the deck each time.
Thank you in advance for your time!!

Hose? You can run the lines in schedule 40 PVC under the deck or in a trench. Not sure what size pump and filter or what type you have but 11/2" or 2" PVC should suffice.
