We're looking at building a 8'x8'x24" pool for the kids (1000 Gal.)
for location of filtration equipment could be in either location:
1- an enclosure below ground 2 feet from the pool. I would guess the bottom of the enclosure would be just deep enough
2- In the shed, which is about 35ft from the pool location, and above ground (obviously). The fllor of the shed is about 6in above ground level
I went to a few pool "stores" and they really didn't want to deal with this, they said it was $15k and basically they don't want to deal with 1000Gal pools. My next step is to look at a few pool contractors (not the stores0 and see if they want to do it. The last step is to do it myself (well, get the digging and concrete by a contractor)
I need some help in finding the correct equipment. from what I read, the water should be cycled in 8 hours, I guess I would run the filter only a short time each day. I also need filtration and salt/chlorine system, basically everything but in way smaller format.
Can anyone help me get started on what I need? Do I need a bootom drain or I can just have an inlet and outlet and clean the bottom myself? Do I need a skimmer or I can clean the surface myself? etc.
Any pointers greatly appreciated.
