Iím a swimming pool novice who is building a home in Punta Gorda, FL and weíre having an in-ground pool built with a pool cage. Iím in need of some advice before I approve the pool design/contract. The pool will be 26ft x 14ft with a 6ft deep end and a 3ft deep end. Iíve figured that the pool will hold approximately 12.300 gallons of water. The pool is a rectangular shape and the surface area is approximately 329 sq feet. An octagonal 6í spa is attached to the pool and is approximately 40 sq feet and Iím assuming a standard depth? There is a main drain in both the pool and spa. The pool has 3 returns, 1 skimmer, 2 two foot sheer waterfalls and 1 multicolored LED light. The spa has 4 jets, 3 spillways into the pool, a blower and 1 multicolored LED light. The following is a list of the products the pool contractor is supplying.
1. Intelliflo VF Pump
2. Clean & Clear Plus cartridge filter CCP-420
3. Intellichlor Salt Chlorine generator IC20
4. Easytouch control System
5. Intellibrite 5G LED light
6. Gulfstream HI 110-RA heat pump pool heater
7. Spa Blower (unknown make, size,etc)
Just looking at the equipment, is this adequate to operate the pool, spa and waterfalls? Is there anything I should ask or be aware of before we proceed? Iíve never owned a swimming pool so Iím at a loss for intelligent questioning of the pool contractor.
Thanks Much in Advance,
