This summer I will be looking at getting an in-ground vinyl liner pool built and would like some advice in reference equipment, returns, skimmers, main drains and slides.
Since I have been on this site I have learned so much on pool care and water chemistry and now we are ready to get a permanent pool. I will be listing some of the items I'm looking at getting for the pool.
I want to keep all of the equipment from the same company and I like Hayward but I am open for suggestions about other companys. I may start to purchase the equipment before hand.
We are wanting a free form pool about 20' x 30 with an 8' deep end. There will be NO diving board on this pool just a slide. Slide suggestions are welcome.
Looking at the Hayward 300lbs sand filter with multi port.
Looking for a good 1hp or 1.5hp 2 speed pump. Suggestions would be welcome.
looking at getting 2 skimmers. Each one on its own line to the equipment pad. NOT connected together. Suggestions welcome.
1 main drain on its own line to the equipment pad. NOT through the skimmer.
4 returns with each one on its own line from the equipment pad with individual ball valves on each return. I want to be able to control each return independently.
1 dedicated suction line for auto cleaner.
Not really looking for any automation except for a SWG. Suggestions are welcome.
LED. Suggestions are welcome.
Looking at 2" for the suction side and 1.5" fro the return side. Suggestions are welcome
Please, any comment or suggestions are welcome.
