Just signed a contract for a new pool and was hoping for some opinions.
I don't have a large backyard, but I do have a small lake view. The patio area is red is going to be screened in with two doors, but I'm still debating on where to install the door that will be used to go from the house to the pool. That door is marked in blue.
Based on the different designs we had from about 5 different companies, this is what we feel is the best design and the PB we feel the most comfortable working with. We also researched all of them and they have no complaints on the BBB and have been in business under the same name since 1985.
The spa is positioned so we can have the best lake view and also since it is raised 12", it won't block our view.
There will be to spa jets in the sitting bench area and 1 bubbler in the sun shelf.
The table on the lower right is probably where I will build a fire pit.
We just signed the contract and are awaiting the engineering plans to sent to us for review before they are submitted for permitting.
If anyone has any thoughts or opinions on the design or equipment list, I would love to hear them.
Hayward VSpeed 3/4 - 2HP for the Pool
Hayward 2HP for the Spa
AirSupply 1HP Air Blower for the Spa
AquaCal T115 Pool Heater - being upgraded to AquaCal SQ120
Hayward AquaRite AQR9 Salt Water Chlorinator.
7 color LED light in the Pool and Spa
6 Jets of varied heights in the Spa
Based on the initial plans, the PB told me its about a 12,000 - 13,000 gallon pool. From the website, I think the AQR3 Salt Water Chlorinator would suffice, however some one told me that if its over powered, then it will work less and I'll save money not having to change out the Cell Cartridge as often. Has anyone ever heard or done it this way before?
Thanks in advance for any replies or responses. I'm going to try to find a picture of the back yard as it is now to help visualize.
