    That's pretty exotic. Where is this. Was it built as a temporary or something?

I think the practices regularly espoused on this forum (especially the BBB method) are outstanding; however my comments will be often oriented towards the goal of getting it done, and getting it done right now!

    Re: Above ground olympic pool anyone?

    I had to check .... based on extrapolating our filter sizing recommendations (i.e. ~1sqft of sand per 5400 gallons). So the 436,000 gallon pool would require ~80 sqft of sand filter.

    From the link it states it includes 12x 1.5HP pumps with 24" filters = ~40 sqft

    So they kept with the apparent industry norm of undersized filters and oversized pumps.
