First post -
I'm still narrowing down pool builders in Austin (will take recs!) and have designed my own pool. My yard is small and with utility easements, there's really only one place that makes sense and it's gonna be small (8500 gal) plus a decent sized spa.
I'm going with a VS Pentair pump and want to reduce, not eliminate, the amount of chlorine used. I've decided on lueder stone (limestone) for coping and I really don't want to mess with a SWCG.
My top PB is offering up EcoSmarte CO2 and Ionic systems OR a Spectra Light UV system.
He's installed both, but doesn't seem to be too excited about either.
Given the small size of my pool, I was thinking even if a system didn't fully deliver on it's marketing materials, but at least was designed with the right science behind it, I could still be in a good position to significantly reduce my chlorine tabs.
I was leaning towards the Nature2 Fusion inground as reviews outside of this site a fairly favorable, but man, this seems to be a very pro-SWCG crowd and rips on any N2 products. What's the next best option for me?
