SO here I am. my wants are in the signature and going to have meeting number 4 with the builder but the first one to start talking about the details. Plan to be building within 4 weeks. TFP has been DOPE!!! as a spectator I feel so much more empowered than my first meeting with the PB. so here is what I need help with. He (PB) has his own opinions and suggestions, but so far i feel comfortable that he is honest enough and willing to discuss other options than just what HE is used to. I asked for a detailed listing of prices, equipment and other attributes of the build (hope to have tomorrow evening). I talked to him about the major system pieces and the pricing that he will charge vs. the prices that I can see on the 'interwebs'. he is comfortable with me getting the major pieces if I can find them (from reputable sources) and he will install. I am trying to be frugal, but not foolish. So folks... for the filter (cart please), swg and pump, where should I go? My sig below has my initial first guess given you folks and previous TFP scouring. Am I on the right track?
What HP for the pump? - 2 speed, but how big?
Cart filter - what size (willing to go bigger since that seems to be the consensus, but how big is norm vs oversize?)
SWG - totally going to donate and become a TFP Supporter, how is the Pool Plot digital RC-35 / SC-36 Cell? too big, too small?
