Hello, as the title suggests we are about to build what everyone is considering a monster pool.
I really just want it for laps for me, but I have a wife and child (9 mos) who will certainly want to play in it a lot too. The dimensions are 20 x 60 feet. I originally wanted 15 X 75 feet (25 yards or meters is fairly standard lap length) but was talked out of it as being impractical.
So, here's the basic build we are looking at: 20 x 60 as noted, 36k gallons, 3 feet of kool deck surrounding with another 200 sq feet of decking for patio-like area. Rectangular shape. Either 2 foot or 4 foot radius corners (not sure yet); two skimmers, two main drains, 6 returns, two 400 watt lights. Auto chlorinator (not salt, I just don't trust it for some reason), pump is hayward 1.5 hp with DE filter.
Will be heated with solar panels, which takes up almost as much space as the pool itself.
Considering an automatic cleaner + booster for an added $1,175 but this sucker is already close to $60k with the fence and heat.
So. I have a feeling there may be some hayward bashing, as it's a common pump. Also, I am not sure what the radii of the corners should be.
(Location: Northern Florida; pool with almost entirely be in direct sun without many leaves)
