Looking at having a 20'x40' inground rectangle with a 8' sun deck across the low end (8'x20') making the overall pool size 20'x48'. May possibly do solar heating in the furture. Our design does not have any large water features or spa, but maybe a couple spitters and it is a pretty large pool (35,000 gal+).
All the PB's we are getting quotes from offer the Hayward super pump 1.5hp standard. One of the companies recommended to upgrade to a variable speed, specifically a Hayward EcoStar. Is this upgrade worth it at $1100.00? Will either of these pumps work with solar heating if we add that in the future?
