As the title indicated, after 2 years of pondering we have decieded to take the plunge and are currently in the permitting process for a new inground pool and spa. It will be free form approximately 32'-18' with a tanning ledge and rock waterfall/grotto. Depth will transition from 3.5' to 6'. PB is letting me pick the equipment and purchase it on my own so I've been heavily researching and this is the list Ive come up with:
All Jandy Products:
Pump: JEP2.0 or VSFHP2.0 Both are variable speed. The VSFHP has a control board that you can choose to use if you want while the JEP does not. Any other big differences between these two models? Which one is quieter...the pump will against the wall that our master bed is on.
Water FAll Pump - Havent deciede this yet.
Filter - CV580 Their largest cartridge filter. I didnt want to plumb into the city sewer for backwashing.
Heater - jxi400n. This is a newer, more compact unit. Anyone have experience with this?
Salt Cell - PLC400
Automation: RS-PS4 or RS-PS6
Interface: IQ20 - This is aqualink2.0 that I believe solved the wifi band issue
Box: 6614ap-l I wanted the breakers for when Im performing system maintenance
Surge Protection Kit - 6908 Ive read that we need something to protect automation systems since we have pretty stormy weather in North Texas. Will this do the job or is there a better way to do it? Can you do it at the homes main panel more efficiently?
Cleaner - Kreepy Krauly
So what are your thoughts on this set up?
Also, Im somewhat confused on how many actuators and relays I need. Heres what I want aqualink to accomplish:
1. Waterfall on/off
2. pool lights on/off
3. spa lights on/off
4. spa heater on/off and temp control. Ive confirmed the selected heater is compatible.
5. pump control
6. landscape lights
Thanks in advance guys...this is one heck of a process!
