    In the decision phase...need help .

    Hello
    I'm trying to decide on a PB and I've gotten together with 4 of them. Each one using pretty much very different equipment. Now I feel more confused than ever. This is from the body of the last quote:

    Plumbing & Equipment
    2 in. and 2.5 in. PVC schedule 40 plumbing
    Dual 2 in. PVC main drains
    Independent suction lines
    Zodiac/Jandy zero maintenance valves
    5 return lines set 12 inches below waterline
    Zodiac/Jandy 1.5 HP full-rated pump. ( I will upgrade to variable speed)
    Zodiac/Jandy 460 sq. ft. cartridge filter
    Auto fill line
    400,000 BTU Jandy heaters with electronic ignition and dual thermostats

    Now under "Miscellaneous" there is listed a floating chlorinator. It actually took me a while to even find it. He never really pointed it out during our meeting. I was so overwhelmed with questions it completely got a way from me. Any advice or suggestions as an alternative would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again.

    How large is the pool supposed to be and what kind of features will it have?

    (....do the LED lights...) I am a complete newbie myself, but I think you'd enjoy the lighting.)

    Can't help on the rest really - I think having the variable speed pump will save you money in electrical costs... but you'll hear from one of the many experts here. Good luck! I'll be watching your progress!
