    Re: Build in Dallas with small yard

    Looks nice!
    A few comments:
    Do you really want a heater, if you don't have a spa? Heating a pool usually is really expensive.
    Ditch the Nature2 and Ozone systems; they are destructive to pools and unnecessary, respectively.
    I would consider a cleaner that doesn't require a booster pump like the Polaris 280 does. The 360 or "the pool cleaner" don't need them. Your pool is small enough that a suction cleaner would probably work OK. A robot is always the most efficient route, but they're expensive.

    Re: Build in Dallas with small yard

    What does this mean: "Excavation with hand shaped walls, and corners are dug out by hand to maximize pool water area."

    Are you going to have no rounding in the corners or at the floor/wall interface? I do not think any cleaners will climb the walls if you do not have rounded corners at the floor.

    BTW: I sent you a PM about how to get your accounts merged, and reset.
