I can't quite believe I am actually typing this! We have our home equity appraisal Monday - and I have been going back and forth with builders for a couple weeks. Fingers crossed - we will have dig equipment out by the end of the month!!
I have been on here for 2 years, soaking up the information and am so thankful for the knowledge and experience on this forum (the builders think I am so smart..if not annoying! Ha!)
First of MANY questions - We are planning a 15x30 3ft - 8ft freeform IG with spa SWG - - -
1.Builder A is bidding with Sta-rite 1 HP 2-speed (with cartridge filter) (I said I want a variable speed, he says anything over 1 speed IS variable?????) Builder B is bidding with Jandy JEP 1.5 variable speed (with DE filter). We are planning solar heat hopefully and I am wondering if the Sta-rite would work efficiently for solar?
2. Builder A heater is 200K gas heater Builder B 400BTU gas heater - whats the difference here?
3. Builder A says they use 2" minimum for plumbing. Builder B uses 2.5"
4. Both builders are doing the footers, as we are subbing out the screen and brick pavers.
I have one more appt tomorrow with a company that could possibly do everything including screen and pavers...fingers crossed as its less headache for me.
Sooooo.... any thoughts so far?
