We are about to build a 24' x 48' 52,000 gal pool with 7' spa. This seemed like a simple enough project until I started reading and researching. It seems like for every opinion about something to do with a pool there is one claiming just the opposite. My head is now spinning. Been reading on this site for a few days now and seems to be the best place for answers.
I have about 1000 questions as this will be our first pool. I try to research best I can before starting a new post, but haven't found any answers specific enough to my situaition.
I am pretty sure I want to go with a SWG system, but am concerned from what I am reading about needing a SWG oversized for the pool it is installed in. Would an IC60 be good enough for this size pool? Or I guess a better way of asking would be would it be economically worth it? My concern is how long the cell will last before it needs to be replaced? Will it be able to keep up with chlorine generation here in East Texas with 110 degree temps in August? Will I have to run it max output all the time, and by doing so does it shorten the life of the cell? Is it possible to run 2 smaller cells, if so is that a viable option?
Planning on FNS 60 DE filter, Pentair 3050 variable speed pump.
All input is welcome and appreciated.
