    need advice

    I am thinking of having a pool and spa installed and the following was recommended as top of line:
    2 hp jandy pump
    3/4 hp polaris pump with model 380 auto cleaner
    Zodiac Fusion mineral purification system with auto chlorinator
    Aqua-Cal heat pump model 120 (113,000 btu)
    2 colorlogic led lights by Hayeard and led spa light
    Jandy pda-ps6 remote control system
    Jandy never lube 3 way valves
    Jandy 1 1/2 hp air blower for spa
    The spa is 7 ft inside diameter with 8 thermo jets
    Please advise any comments will be appreciated

    I will bite and add some non-expert comments

    Top-of-the-line as defined by whom ... the person trying to sell the stuff to you?

    Is the 2HP pump 2-speed or variable? Get a 2-speed at a minimum and 2 HP may be overkill
    Delete the Mineral system ... not need for anything
    Delete the chlorinator ... will just get you into trouble with CYA levels too high
    Many people do not have or even use air blowers in the spa ... can get similar affects with venturi jets
    Jandy or Pentair valves are nice with lifetime warranties.

    That is about all I can offer.

    Do you have specific questions about anything?
