We are in the middle of renovating our pool and will be redoing all of the plumbing at the pool pad.
The plumbing setup was previously as follows:

As part of the pool renovation, we filled in the main drain, added a waterfall and redid all of the plumbing to the pad. We will be doing all of the pad plumbing when the weather warms up.
I am eventually going to get an automation system, but for now every thing will stay manual. I am currently thinking of getting the following setup:

The actuators, flow meters and thermometer will be added later.
The question that I keep on asking myself is wheter I should also put in a bypass for the heater and a second bypass for the SWCG.
What do you folks think? Any suggestions?
N.B. The attached drawing was what I was originally planning before we had added the waterfall and filled in the main drain
