First time to build a pool.
Looking at an 18' x 31' geometric (rectangle) build with a 7' x7' raised spa. There will be benches along a couple of the walls.
I am trying to decide on cleaning system. I have one builder suggesting a simple Polaris system and another suggesting an A&A in-floor system with 17 heads, 31" AVSC drain, 2 50-70 GPM (Ecoskim) venturi skimmers separate from the main floor drain (so full power to the main drain to pull in debris).
I do have trees in the yard so leaves will be an issue. I have read many concerns regarding the infloor systems but have also read good reports when installed and plumbed correctly with enough heads. The builder pushing the infloor system belongs to the Master Guild of pool builders and is very reputable. The one suggesting the Polaris system thinks infloor systems do not work.
I understand that there is no perfect system and I fully expect to do some manual brushing, regardless if it is an infloor system or a simple Polaris system (especially with benches along the walls) I would appreciate any thoughts on the subject.
Also any thoughts on ozone systems with chlorine
Pool will be in central Texas so hard freezes not an issue
