Looking for some feedback on the below proposed set-up.
- Location: Northern Cali - San Jose area - no shade!
- In ground - rectengular 36' x 15' with spa
- SWG sanitation
- automatic pool cover
- in-floor cleaning system
- 400,000 btu gas heater
- 8 speed variable pump
We have several quotes from contractors and of course their opinions go all the way from "never do this" and "we always do this" on both the sanitation (SWG) and in-floor cleaning (not specifically on combining these).
Any specific concerns someone would have with the above setup? I know SWG sanitation will mean there is some salt in the water. Most parts will be stainless so this shouldn't be an issue. Any concerns with having a pool cover with SWG sanitized pool? Also, when going with a pool cover, would a hydraulic cover be better than electric when using SWG?
Would SWG have any negative effect on in-floor cleaning?
Also, one recommendation was to not use in-floor and also forget about the sweeper. Reason: we'll have the pool cover closed most of the time anyway and there are no plants or trees close by the pool so not much debris will get in the pool. This sounds very optimistic to me so would love to hear thoughts on this.
Thanks in advance!
