Hi this is my first time posting here, but I have been reading and learning a lot for the past year or so.
I'm starting to plan my pool/spa for next spring and would like some advice on my plumbing. My plan is to by a 12'x24' rectangle vinyl pool kit with a 8' step and build a 7'x4' ICF (insulated concrete form) spa with NO spillover. I want to be able to shut down the pool in Sept. and run the spa in probably Dec and reopen the spa in March. Since I'm in Southern Ontario Canada I don't think it worth to try to run it all year(although I would like to). I plan on doing most of the work myself with the exception of the excavation, electrical, and pool bottom. I have a colleague that specializes in ICF and going to help with the spa.
Could somebody take a look at is dwg and give me some advice or point me in a better direction.
Does it make sense to have separate line for the drain and skimmer, If so what are the advantages / disadvantages.
