I know I can ask a pool builder y questions, but I feel that they will answer my questions with the products they sell and not what the best choice should be.
So, I'd like to ask some unbiased people their opinions.
My pool to be: 20x44 x 9' deep rectangle liner, swg, 3 Led intellibrite, Cartridge filter
#1. Pool equipment brand preference ? (Hayward or Pentair)
#2. Variable speed or multi speed pump?
#3. Brand of diving board? 8' long
#4. Winter safety cover brand?
#5. Foam under vinyl over steel steps? Thickness of foam on sides of pool?
#6. Wait over winter before doing patio around pool? One PB says no need as they wet and compact every 8" of backfill.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
