...thoughts have turned to pool installation for the Spring.
Good afternoon all.
I'm located on the west side of Michigan, just outside the Grand Rapids area.
My family and I are getting ready to hire a contractor to install a 20x40 inground liner pool.
Just had a few questions, and thought I would throw them out there before I gave my contractor a deposit...
What type of filter should I be looking for? sand/DE/cartridge
I have heard to stay away from Hayward due to quality issues but that's only what I've read
What type of pump is the best for a 20 X 40?
What type of chlorination system to use? chlorine/salt-low chlorination/that UV zapper thingy
And heaters...we need to maximize our swim season up here in the mid west and will be installing an lp heater and potentially a supplemental solar panel heater.
Any other tips or suggestions?
I grew up with both liner and gunnite pools, and finally want to get my kids one.
Lastly, we are installing and automatic pool cover. What experiences if any have the good folks here at TFP had with auto pool covers?
