    Installing New Hayward Aqua Plus & Eco Star Pump (Tips?)

    Hi!

    After a week of seeking advise on this forum and receiving very valuable input, I have decided on the equipment I'll be installing in about 2 weeks.

    The Pool:
    - Capsule Shaped 25ft by 8ft with a 6ft diameter Spa that cascades into the pool, 5ft deep and 3ft shallow ends (6,500gal approx., including spa).

    Departing Equipment:
    - Hayward 1.5hp Super Pump
    - Standard Timer & Circuit Breaker Box.

    New Arrivals:
    - Hayward Eco Star (I know it's probably "too much" for a small pool, but this is Puerto Rico and power is hitting $0.30 kW/h in less than a month)
    - Hayward Aqua Plus with Remote Control feature & Salt Cell

    What are your experiences with the Eco Star and Aqua Plus, either separately or together in a system?

    Appreciate any comments/tips!

    Thanks!

    Use unions on the plumbing at equipment so it's easy to replace if there's a problem.

    Thanks and will do!

    Question to all:

    Is it worth to install a bypass to the Salt System Cell?
