My wife and I are currently in the process of building a new home in Eastern PA, and we would like to install a pool. The house will be complete in November, so we were thinking we'd start the pool in early spring to be ready for next summer. We are interested in a rectangle shaped pool, most likely 20x40. We'd like an automatic pool cover that is as inconspicuous as possible. We'd also like some features like multi color LED lighting, bubblers, and maybe a spillover. We'd also like raised hot tub that is not inside the pool. I'd also like it to be as automated as possible.
What is a good brand to look at for pool automation?

What type of heater would work best for our application? Do heat pumps heat a hot tub to a high enough temperature?
I have been looking at Peble Tec finishes, and I am interested in that type of finish. How hard is that type of finish on your feet?
