I have been going back and forth for the last 2 years about building a pool. Doing it myself ... hiring it done ..... back and forth.
I finally agreed to have a builder put one in for me and he is supposed to start in 3 weeks. I am going through everything in my head trying to makes sure I get pretty much exactly what I want.
18x36 IG liner pool. Sport bottom. Under coping auto cover. 3 deck jets. Steps across one entire end.
Standard configuration from this builder is a single skimmer and 2 returns.
I have been thinking of the equipment pad and what I might do for automation. He sells Hayward equipment .....
I would like to add a second skimmer and a third return.
For the equipment pad I am looking at the Hayward Pro Logic PL4. I would like it to control a Hayward Superpump VS, Hayward ColorLogic light (a single light), Hayward Turbocell and a single valve that would turn on the deck jets.
Basically I would like my wife or kids to have a wireless terminal to push a button and turn on the lights or turn on the deck jets (which would increase pump speed as well as open the valve to the jets).
In the future I will add a heater ..... just not right now.
So ..... will the Hayward system be a decent option? Anything I am missing? Anything additional I should consider?
