I'm installing an in ground pool kit, have some questions, can't decide on some items and I get conflicting answers.
Pool dimensions are 16'x38', the pump will be another 30' away.
Specific questions are:
- 1.5HP two speed, 1HP single speed or variable speed pump: which is best? which get's me the best value over time? generally how much more are variable speed pumps?
- 1.5" or 2" plumbing: which is best?
- Hayward or Sta-Rite equipment? any real difference in quality?
- steel panel pool kit or polymer panel? I'm in CT where I know I have some clay soil (not sure if clay is neutral or acidic?)
any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.
