Long time lurker - first time post.
Without exception, all of the PBs that I've talked to are pushing the in-floor cleaning system. However, after reading through a ton of posts on TFP, I'm planning on going with a robot. The one thing about the in-floor cleaning systems that intrigues me is the argument about better circulation.
So, here's my question - what do you think about getting the wallside returns (say 6x) installed at the very bottom of the wall? Say 1ft off the bottom with directional eyeballs? That way, I'd get some of the benefits of improved circulation, while still keeping the horizontal rotation of the pool?
I noticed someone already asked about returning all of the water through the bottom, but there was some concern about circular rotation within the pool (see thread below):
Plumb Return Lines to BOTTOM of Pool?
Is there a standard height off the floor that might work? I'd LOVE to get your opinions!!
