Greetings everyone! We are New to AZ and this forum. We've just closed on our home this past Friday which was a foreclosure. We had a home inspection done prior to purchasing the house and the pool. It was noted the pool has issues. Pump needs replacement, Quik clean Infloor actuator needs replacement, Hayward heater doesn't fire up, (This is for the spa) before any type of diagnostic can be ran it needs a circuit board and the timer needs replacement. I've got a contractor coming out to get the pool up and running but me and the wife want to do our own service / maint. I've ordered the TF-100 and think I will go with the BBB method to maintain the pool. We both are reading and rereading Pool School.
Here is my problem, the size of the pool, I've include a picture of the of the pool, it's a different shape. 30 x 22 at the widest point and 4ft shallow and 5ft deepest. I know it's important to know how much water is in the pool... We are going to go shopping for pool supplies, can anyone provide a list so we are not wasting money.
Also is it worth the extra $600 to go with the Intelliflo Variable Speed? The pump quoted was $900 but the upgrade Intelliflo will be $1500. I'm thinking I will make my money back in a year or so just on electric cost.. Am I wrong in thinking this??
