I just got a quote back for a pool and I was wondering if you guys could you please give me your feedback on any opinions you have on the setup?
Deep end width 16 ft
Shallow end width 20 ft
Length 34 ft
Shallow depth 3-5 ft
Deep end depth 8 ft
Perimeter 93 ft
Surface area 455
Here are the options I am getting:
A&A in floor cleaning system with cam driven switchable pressure heads
1 venturi skimmer rated at 50-70 GPM
1 A&A AVSC Channel Drain
Auto water leveler
2 IntelliBrite LED pool lights
4p 4PSC IC40 Wireless operation
4 Aux Wireless controller
Intellitch Valve Actuator
50 sq ft Grotto Waterfall
2 jumping rocks on deep end
Exposed aggregate concrete
Acrylic Faux flagstone
(Haven’t decided which on I want to go for yet.)
Black pearl pebble tec
Blue Dot 6x6 tile around the water line
The filter listed in the quote is:
Modular media 600 microban filter sta-rite
but I think It’s this product:
System:3 Modular Media Filters
VS 3050 Variable speed pump
A couple of questions I have are:
The skimmer is rated at 50-70 GPM, do I need more than one for this size pool?
They only put one drain on the quote as well, which is rated at 225 GPM, do I need more than one of these too?
The sales person wasn’t currently able to tell me the GPM requirement for the grotto but said that I wouldn’t be able to run the cleaning system and grotto on the same pump at the same time. Would there be any reason why I would want to do this?
I was wondering how often I need to keep the skimmer on? The sales guy said as long as I want it to be on but what do you guys recommend?
With the Intellitouch I should be able to automate everything separately correct? Can I change the pump speed with the different systems? Would there be anything I would need to do that this system wouldn’t support? They said they were going setup separate valves for the Skimmer, water feature, and cleaning system.
Because of the back and forth about the in floor cleaning system they are going to run a separate line for a vacuum cleaning system. I thought this would be a good way to protect myself in the future in case the in floor cleaning system doesn’t pan out. Should I wait until I have an issue to rewire the Intellitouch to work with the vacuum cleaning system or should I get the 8p 8PSC IC40 and have them set it up now?
Thanks in advance for all of your help on these questions!
