After interviewing several pool builders, we have decided to brave the owner-builder route. I'm waiting on my engineering plans, but based on renderings from one particular builder, the pool is estimated to be about 41,000 gallons. It will be a basic pool with no spa or fancy water features, although it will have a TurboTwister slide and two bubblers.
I'm wanting to pick at least a 2 speed Pentair pump (or VS if the cost and size make sense for my situation) and was looking for some recommendations on size and model. I know enough that I do not want to oversize the pump, but I really don't know what size I need. Our electricity rates here in TX are pretty good, and right now we pay about $0.074 per KWhr, if that makes any difference. Also, we will be going with the biggest cartridge filter that Pentair makes. If there is anything else relevant that I am missing, please feel free to ask.
Thank you for any help you can offer!
