I'm a complete newbie to all this pool stuff... Inherited a mess last year when we brought the house...
Pool was a swamp with a torn up liner and it was only half way filled with water. We drained the water and ripped out the liner. Luckily for us, the walls are fine but now we are looking at a remodel due to the mess it's in.
My concerns are,
1) The pool repair guy want's to use 1-1/2" flexible PVC to hook up the main drains to the filter... I've read it's not good to use the flexible PVC?
2) He want's to install a Hayward S-200 sand filter on a 22K gallon pool... Doesn't seem adequate to me... I maybe wrong, being a newbie and all...
3) He want's to install a Hayward 1 HP single speed Super pump... I'm worried about running costs...
I'm thinking of a Hayward pro series S-244T filter and a Hayward 1 HP dual speed super pump. Which I can get both for $300 less than what he quoted me! More money for pools toys lol
Opinions/advice would be very welcome. I'm planning on getting the remodel started within the next 4 - 6 weeks. I want to get these issues figured out before I hand over any money.
Thanks in advance,
