    That looks fairly good. There is more detail than we often see.

    I suggest getting a larger heater. It isn't usually much more money, and it can heat the pool significantly faster. 400 is the most common large size. This is sometimes limited by your gas service, so it isn't always possible, but worth it if the cost isn't too high.

    I am a bit unclear on which filter that refers to. The "quad" filters are DE filters that come in sizes of 60, 80 and 100. There is a Clean & Clear Plus 320 cartridge filter, but it isn't quad. Assuming that is the C&C 320, a larger filter isn't required, but would be nice. Larger filters let you go longer between cleanings, which is always nice.
