    Any counsel would be much appreciated. Also would like to hear thoughts on payment terms. I spoke to several people who had pools installed an all of them complained that they should not have given all the money until final punch list was done/signed off as they couldn't get them back for months.

    Thank you for any help.

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Filter size looks to be fine (assuming about a 24k volume)
    2HP is likely required for the spa, but you could save a lot of money on electricity by getting the 2-speed version of the Tristar. BTW, the Hayward controller will have no problem controlling the speed selection.

    Hold on to as much money as you possibly can as late as you can. But, do not be surprised when they will try to not let you hold on to more than 10%.
