So I've met with 5 builders now? Anyhow, most are recommending Hayward, have been fine with and encourage my thoughts of an SWG, and mostly said all the same things. Then today, I met with another PB that had all different recommendations. He was a sales guy through and through but I wanted to at least research everything he told me. He's been doing this for 30 years in Texas, uses UV/Ozone (Ultra UV) with Chlorine pellets. He said SWG is going away due to issues with corrosion and they haven't used it for 3 years now. He said he was happy to provide me with the list of references on pools they've built. The others also recommended a vacuum where he recommended the in-ground PCC 2000 cleaner system. They are a big pool company that does a lot of warranty and remodels as well as builds in the area. He seemed really surprised that he was the first to tell me not to get an SWG. Thoughts?
We got our first design drawing from a builder today. SO exciting to see it pictured in our own yard!
