New pool owner getting ready to construct 16x30 salt water in-ground pool. Retired living in Belize, Central America year round. Electrical cost is currently .25 cents US per KWH so electrical usage is a major concern. Considering the following equipment.
1. Hayward Ecostar VS pump
2. Hayward Aqua-Rite chlorine generator, up 40,000 gal
3. Hayward c17502s Star-Clear Plus cartridge 175 sq. ft. W/ 2in. SLIP
I would appreciate opinions and advise based on the equipment listed. Given my location and the inconvenience/cost of shipping from the US I'm hoping to reduce pump wear and replacement of filters and parts. Pool down time waiting for replacement parts to arrive from the US would create additional problems. There is a pool supply company but cost for most equipment is over double and in some cases triple US prices.
