Hi I am in the process of designing and building an IG pool/spa, it will be about 16,000 gallons in NE Florida. This forum has been very helpfully as I am new to pools and have a lot to learn. I have a couple of question I was hoping the forum group can help me with as I talk with PB.
I am planning on locating the equipment in the back corner of my yard. It will be about 80' away from the pool/house. If wanted to use solar panels would the 160+' round trip distance be a problem?
I am look at Pentair IntelliChlor, Intelliflo Variable speed pump VS-3050 with either EasyTouch or an IntelliTouch. I am leaning towards the IntelliTouch. I think my set up would be simple. Pool and Spa with shared equipment, waterfall, LED lights, and some low voltage lights around the pool deck, Gas heater for the spa and if Solar panels will not work for my setup I might add a heat pump to heat the pool. Can the EasyTouch handle two heaters? From looking at prices online it looks like the IntelliTouch would only cost a couple hundred more. But I could use my computer to manage the equipment and use an iPhone/iTouch/iPad as a remote. Or should just stay with the EasyTouch.
What else should I thinking about? I like to know as much about a topic as I can. Most PB are just trying to sell you what they have or know about, but I am the one that has to live with this for a long time.
Thanks in advance,
