Wifey and I downsized this summer and moved to a smaller house/less land/ no pool.
It was a great move and we love it……..but miss the pool.
Last pool was over the top. freeform, aqua logic ps-8 automation, north star pump, salt, heat pump, pavers, pavilion, outdoor kitchen, fireplace and way way too much landscaping. (36 yds of mulch)
Thinking of going back to basic. 18x36, vl, concrete deck, 2 speed pump, inter medic timers, polaris and rainbow chlorine feeder.
Had this with very first house and it was great and way cheaper.
The Automation was nice, but replaced the board and salt cell in less then 4 yrs.I think salt is just fancy way to make chlorine and tired of replacing all the fancy boards, controls etc.
Kinda like washing machines. they never broke, right?
I appreciate the input.
