    Welcome to TFP!

    The first comment i have is that the pool builder is doing you no favors with a couple of the items he is suggesting.

    The DEL Eclipse is an ozone generator. There is no need for ozone in an outdoor residential pool.

    The RB320 is a tricolor puck erosion chlorine feeder. We find that use of these types of equipment for primary chlorination leads to over stabilization (about half of a tricolor puck is stabilizer), which leads,to more problems down the road. We believe the primary source of chlorine should be non stabilized - either a salt water chlorine generator or a liquid chlorine injection system.

    I recommend a visit to our Pool School (link at the top of every page). Start with the Pool School - ABCs of Pool Water Chemistry to understand this a little more.
