    You would need a full time employee just to maintain all the pumps, filters, and chlorinating equipment. It would be interesting to see the equipment list for that place and no telling what their chlorine use is, but it's bound to be high. If I were selling that place I would advertise in Saudi or Kuwait and ask at least $6 million.

    Hayward sand filter, 3.14 sq ft, 62 gpm. Stenner 45 MPH10 chlorine feed pump. 1 micron final filter bags (home made and very effective)
