    It's 20x44 with a 18x14 l section. Trying to decide on pump, filter, etc. Has 6 ft swim out in deep end. Has three above water line spray jets. Also have Jets in both sets of stairs.

    Trying to decide on decking. Thought about 12"x24" travertine coping around pool.

    Looks great. Dumb question, but are those pre-fab pool walls of some sort ? I didn't know that kind of thing existed.

    They are polymer wall sections that are bolted together. You then have brackets that are bolted to back of them and are at a 45 degree angle. You then pour concrete up about 10-12" up the wall to help tie everything in. You then screw tracking down. I decided to use crush and run as a back fill to help with settling.

    It's a builder but I am helping and helping makes decisions. Gotta figure out liner, deck, pump, filter, salt system.

    Re: New L Shape pool in Georgia

    For a pool that big I would go ahead and get a 3hp variable speed pump. Since you are going with a salt system, I would get a cartridge filter, at least 500 sq. ft.

    Letting Mother Nature rain on the crush and run and letting it settle for a couple weeks.

    A 3 hp rated pump is overkill for that pool. A 1.5 full-rated pump will be perfectly adequate unless you plan on having water features. It is important to place your returns correctly with an L-shape so you do not have and water circulation "dead" spots.

    There is no particular advantage in a cartridge filter because you have an SWG. Filter comparisons have been beaten to death on this forum but there is a comprehensive article in pool school that will help you find out that each type has pros and cons with no single type being markedly superior.

    I have three jets in swim out, two in steps and also have three above water line spray jets. What pump and filter do you think I should go with.
