Hello - I've been lurking for a few days and I'm so thankful that I found this site prior to signing a pool contract and building. That said, I have a few questions and would very much appreciate everyone's help.
I live in Orlando, FL and plan to start pool construction this coming January. Right now I'm in the fact gathering/talk with pool builder/and refine design mode. I've narrowed the search to two builders and am now trying to make the apples to apples comparison with both - I think either could do the job and meet my expectations.
I'll start by asking for help to right-size the pool equipment. The pool will be free-form, roughly 15 x 30 ft, depth 3-5 ft, probably 13k-14k gallons with a spa. I plan for the spa to overflow into the pool - this will be the main water feature, but will also have a bubbler or two.
Based on the above information, is the equipment below the correct sizing? Let's assume 2.5" pipes. Any recommendations?
