Thanks a lot for all of your help so far. I finally received the actual recommended installation plan from the engineer. I need your help once again - check out the two attached diagrams and let me know:
1- What do you think of the placement of returns, skimmer, light? (notice that the 3 ventury jet lines on the lower left bench also serve as return lines when blower is not ON)
2- What do you think of the equipment set-up? Note: I think I prefer only one pump to control water-features and flow. I don't mind having to go and engage the water-features valve when I want to use it on the weekends.
3- Pump to Use?: Since I want one pump to handle everything (except booster bump for cleaning), I was leaning towards these two options: HAYWARD 1.5 HP 2 SPEED, OR HAYWARD 1.5HP VARIABLE.
I need to get back to engineer tomorrow with my final decisions in order for him to sign off plans and proceed with permitting!
POOL SPECS: 12 X 24 Rectangular, 10,500 Gallons. Water Features: 4 Deck Jets, 3 Ventury Jet Lines with Blower for a Mini-Bench/Spa.
