wasn't sure if this belonged here or in the under construction forum. at any rate, before we sign our contract with the PB is there anything we should stipulate at the equipment pad? I'm thinking in terms of minimum PVC lengths between various components, valves, any nice-to-have PVC couplings, etc.. to make maintenance easier down the road? To get an idea, we're looking at going with a Pentair system (IntelliFlo 3HP VSP, CCP520 filter, the IC40+EasyControl for SWG and automation) and a suction side cleaner (Baracuda MX8).
We are planning on having a dedicated vacuum return line (valved separately) based on some suggestions here and was going to dedicate 2 of the returns for those DIY aeration/PVC things we've seen here as well. I assume we'd want those valved separately as well? Not planning on any water features, though we may add some scuppers if the budget allows. I suppose we'd want that valved separately as well. No attached spa as we're going with a standlalone hot tub.
appreciate any thoughts, suggestions, wish-we-had-done-this experiences, etc.. before we sign the contract so we can get this stuff in writing.
