    Nice looking pool! I'm spittin' distance from you. I'm not an expert but will tell you what they told me - lose the Nature 2 - you don't need it. Is it Foley by chance?

    Looks great!

    Any interest in upgrading to an LED light setup? Much more energy efficient, and seeing that you are going with Pentair equipment, the Intellibrite series is really a nice light. Something to consider. Look forward to seeing this build!

    very nice design, I agree on losing the Nature 2, and going with LED's instead of standard. Pricier but more energy efficient and ability to change colors depending on mood is awesome. I also found that a blue light attracts less bugs than the white light.

    Yes, it is Foley! How'd you guess?

    Thanks for the info on the Nature2. Looked into it further and think we will ditch it.

    We will be adding the LED's as well! How many would you suggest?

    I would suggest 2 pool and 1 spa. I looked at similar sized pools with 1 vs 2 and the difference was noticeable. Put it this way - I have yet to hear someone say they wish had chosen 1 instead of 2, but have heard the opposite more than a few times!

    I have a similar size/shape pool with LEDs - two in the pool and one in the spa.
