Really glad I found this forum, such a wealth of information. Maybe someday I will be experienced enough to help others, but right know I am a clueless newbie who needs your help.
Signed a contract a little over a month ago for an in ground pool install. It's at the point where the municipal permits have been approved and we are expecting delivery of the pool supplies at the end of the week (with excavation starting early next week). The project manager who visited the site yesterday was trying to find an ideal location for the concrete pad (4x7) which will hold the pool equipment. When I mentioned that I wanted the pump, filter, and SWG (all Hayward) inside the shed, she told me it's not recommended as it will void the warranty since it gets too hot in there . I live in Canada BTW, it can get hot in the summer but nowhere near Florida or Arizona hot (shed has windows for ventilation)They want to place everything out in the open, which in my small yard, will be an eyesore and limit my patio space. I could not find any mention of this on Hayward's website (except for the heat pump, which I would obviously leave outdoors)
She also mentioned that when I went to open up the filter to wash the cartridges, I would flood my entire shed. Any truth to any of this?
