In case I never introduced myself properly, I am a state public pool inspector. That's right...I'm the devil himself. Along with inspections, I also conduct design review for renovations and new construction. Like most pool inspectors, I don't have the opportunity to actually operate or build pools and spas (should be a prerequisite for this position).
I have a very conscientious chief engineer at a large condo association that is building a new 2,800 gallon 9' x 18' in-ground spa. Like many, he struggles with keeping their existing spa clean when it is under heavy use. He was wondering if it would be helpful to install a filter on the booster pump system for the new spa? I can't see any downsides to this given that the filter would have to be sized properly for the max speed of a pentair intelliflo-svrs. But that is why am consulting TFP, to see if there are consideration I am not thinking of. My only concern is water stagnation in the filter when it is not used for any prolonged period.
Your shared thoughts are appreciated.
