We are looking into building out 1st pool. Virtual tour provided below. This is the setup recommended by the pool builder:

Surface SQFT: 658 SQFt
Pool Depth: 3’ – 5’( With lounging area per plans 12” deep)
Tile: Waterline 1” x 1” Matted Jules series
Interior Finish: Specialty Aggregate Gem Finish (Choice Of Color)www.floridastucco.com Gem Series
Lights: 2- 500 Watt White (Could Opt for LED)
Main Drains: 4 Pool
Returns: 6 Pool
3 Year Full Warranty on all Equipment No Exceptions!
Pump: Jandy 1.5 Hp Jandy Stealth (Most Energy Efficient Available)
Filter: Jandy CV 580 Cartridge
Sanitization – Ei 1400 Salt System
Pool Decking and Coping
Techo Block Blue 60mm - on a 6" gravel base
Techo Block Bullnose
Any input/ recommendations on the equipment? I know I am going to upgrade to LED lights. I am considering going with Wet Edge in a Satin Matrix finish. I am also considering an upgrade on the pool pump also to a 2hp. I would rather be overkill than underpowered and have to replace. The equipment itself is sitting roughly 100 ft from the pool and will sit maybe 18" max below the pool edge. The backyard has a slope and I do not want the pool equipment near the house. I was thinking about a controller such as the Jandy iAquaLink to wirelessly turn on and off the equipment and lights, but the builder said since it is really only 3 items, 2 lights, and a pool pump, that it would be less expensive to have the electrician wire everything to switches. (I can use home automation switches from x10, z-wave, etc) to be able to remotely turn on and off the equipment.
Any input would be helpful. Thank you in advance.
