Hi everyone. We have been looking at IG pools for the past three years (concrete, fiberglass, and vinyl) and are finally ready to sign a contract. We are considering the following:
20x48 double roman (Cardinal) Garrett vinyl liner (20 mil) IG pool (9' deep with extended hopper)
Vinyl lined steps within the roman radius
Hayward cartridge filter / 2HP Hayward pump
Polaris booster pump with auto vacuum (not sure which model yet)
Hayward ColorLogic 4.0 lights (2 lights on long sides)
Garrett Solid Safety cover (brass anchors)
Stamped or dyed concrete (6 feet on long sides, 7 feet at diving end, 9 feet at shallow end)
8 foot jump board
net-rope-ladder-hand rail for steps-bug/leaf net-thermometer-test kit-solar blanket-brush
1.5" schedule 40 and solar flex
5 returns and one skimmer
Salt Water Generator
I am concerned about the saltwater generator and 2 hp pump. The pump seems like overkill and will cost a bunch to run it. As for the saltwater, will my equipment, concrete and pool liner suffer over the years?
Any comments would be helpful.
