Planning to sign a pool contract today but want to first make sure I get clarity on a few items (and I appreciate everyone's help in advance):
Our pool will be around 13,000 gallons, with a spa, and two bubblers.
Question #1: Right now we have the Pentair IntelliFlow VS 3 HP (11018) pump in our design. It's my understand that this pump is more than enough to handle all aspects of the spa and pool. Is it worth getting a dedicated pump, say a 1HP for the two bubblers? Or can I make it work with the current pump?
Question #2: We'd like to do automation. I'm confused with the differences between the Pentair EasyTouch and IntelliTouch systems. We basically want to control the pool pump (and bubbler pump if needed - see question #1), turn lamp posts on/off, heat pump on/off, and control the LED lights in the pool. Also, we want to go with the ScreenLogic interface - which I believe works for either system.
I'm looking forward to the conversation. Thank you!
