I will begin construction of a new pool starting next week. I will be the GC and have lined up the subcontractors for the various phases of construction I decided to build a pool about a two weeks ago, so I am feeling a little overwhelmed with all of the decisions to make. Anyway, I have a few questions with regards to what equipment to purchase, etc. Any comments or advice would be appreciated.
Pool size: 40'x22' gunite
Depth: 3.5' to 5.5' to 4'
Area: 760 sqft
Two Main drains
1. My biggest question to this point is what type of CL2 system to use. My wife and friends are convinced that a SWG system is the way to go, but I have not talked to one pool contractor or service company that recommends them. Corrosion issues seem to be their biggest concern. I was planning on going with the in-line chlorinator for tabs, until finding this forum. Now it seems that chlorine liquid is the answer, but I am concerned with keeping up with the daily workload. My wife and kids think that there eyes will burn and the pool will smell like chlorine without the SWG. Any thoughts?
2. I am talking to a local pool service company for recommendations as well as to purchase equipment from. They are recommending a Jandy stealth 2.5HP pump, Jandy DE filter, Polaris 280 poll cleaner, Polaris 3/4hp pump, and in-line chlorinator. Any thoughts?
Once again, any comments and advice would be greatly appreciated. I need to get these concerns behind me ASAP, as I have alot of work ahead of me!
