My wife and I just bought our first home in October and it has a 27,000 gallon pool. The pool, pump, and heater where built in the early 70's. My pump and the heater are starting to give us problems. I would like to replace the pump and heater, if needed I can replace the filter as well.
Currently I have
pump: MAX-E-GLASS by Sta-Rite PE5E-125L 1 HP
Filter: FNS plus 48 DE filter
Heater: Lars Lite by Teledyne Laars
Some things I am looking for
I want to be able to add solar heating in the future
I want to have the ability to have a remote control (hard wired and/or wireless and over the internet and/or phone)
I want to add actuators for the valves
I might go to a salt pool but that is down on the list.
The only thing i have researched is the the pump. I think I want to get the Intelliflow VF pump due to the flow sensing abilities.
If you could please help me with some recommendations for the pump, heater, filter, controller and actuators.
If you need any more information please let me know.
