Just want to say hi ... and sorry for tons of annoying questions to come .
Last year we bough a new home with a 20' X 40' Fox in ground with spa in bad shape. We started with pool last summer - liner, cleaning, pressure test and winterizing.
Since end of this winter is hopefully coming I am in the process of planning/quoting on mechanical side of my "waterhole". As you probably know by now it is a learning process for me.
I am hoping to find some good people here that would let me use their knowledge in getting the right answers/choices. Right now I am trying to decide on brands / sizes types on all the equipment. Shopping for:
- Filter (sand or insert) ... so far - Pentair Quad DE High Flow Filter | 100 Sq Ft
- Pumps ... Pentair IntelliFlo Variable Speed Pump VS+ 3.2kW 3HP Max as main and not sure about the boost for spa
- Heater : so far
Pentair MasterTemp HD Low NOx Pool Heater - Electronic Ignition - Cupro
Nickel - Natural Gas - 400,000 BTU HD
- trying to decide on salt or not ..if yes ......Pentair Intellichlor Salt Chlorine Generator | 60,000 Gallon Complete System
After that I will need to replace light maybe some control unit ... as you see everything I have so far is Pentair. Not sure if there is better choices ... considering product itself as well as price/warranty. I am on a budget ... hoping to put it together myself. I did talk with two pool guys ... they have their own opinions. I am a bit confused after. I was set on salt now one of them told me that it will destroy my liner ...?
It's probably little chaotic ... sorry. Please let me have your opinions, advise anything will be welcomed.
