    Pool site is 18-40' from front to back from equipment pad of which pad sits 2' below water line.

    Small sport pool.

    Goal at is optimal filtration, and proper functioning to SWG, combined with minimal VS pump use/cost.
    Planned: 10K Gal, 320' ff sport black PTec, 75% sun.
    400K Raypak, Jandy CL460, Jandy JEP2.0HP VS, iLink RS-P6, LED light.
    3, 24" Sheer Descents off 24" raised BB.
    Robotic Cleaner (open to suggestions).
    2.5" suct., 2" ret. , 1 skimmer, 2DH, 2Std. returns, on Pad 24" < H2O.

    Why, are you in a particularly windy, dusty, leafy area?

    Not really. But we do have a crepe myrtle tree that sheds a lot into the pool, which the skimmers catch. But, I think that's what my PB puts in all his pools as a minimum. I'm not saying if it's right or wrong, I'm just stating what my PB did. But it does circulate the water really well.

    Thanks.

    You seem to have a similar build and equipment. I also see your PB oversized your filter to their max size.

    Which VS pump do you have by Jandy? Do you have floor deep heat returns as part of the ? Do you have any water features or a spa on that pump as well? Do you kno wit you have Jandy's 700 or 1400 SWG?

    I have the 1400 SWG, the ePump 1.5 VS, and the JXi 400k btu heater. Yes, we have 3 scuppers on the back wall and those run off the pump, but have their own manual controls. We chose not to automate, but sometimes I wish we had. I see you are getting the iAquaLink. That's good. We got the PDA system and now only after a few months are considering upgrading because the screen is so hard to see and really is outdated technology (who has PDAs nowadays???).

    Re: Build and Equipment Opinions Please

    So Jandy says that technically the 700 Aquapure is for pools our size-do you find you are able to stay at appropriate FC at that bigger 1400 unit?

    Do do you have any idea what your plumb diameter " was done at and what your filter pressure psi and GPM flow is?

    I am now thinking of stepping down to the 1.5HP vs. 2.0HP E pump, albeit negligee difference. Thanks.

    Re: Build and Equipment Opinions Please

    I keep my swg running at 30% and it keeps the chlorine between 5-6. Now we have a light bather load (no kids) and the pool is only in full sun about 3 hours per day, with the rest being sun and shade. The FC is a hair on the high side for my CYA of 70, but with so much tree debris blowing into the pool I am trying to be proactive. Now if I can just keep that pesky pH down...

    I believe all pipes are 2" but I'd have to go out and check the psi. GPM I dont have a clue.
