    - Make sure main drains and skimmers are plumbed separately to the pump with a 3-way valve.
    - Pump might be over-sized, although may be sized due to the sheer descents ... definitely want to upgrade this to a 2-speed pump.
    - Forget the inline chlorinator (can you get a refund applied toward the SWG?)
    - Why is there a white light and a colored light?
    - Mentions a dedicated cleaner suction line, but then includes a pressure side cleaner??? You sure you want a pressure side cleaner and not a suction side or robot? See: http://www.troublefreepool.com/conte...-pool-cleaners

    Thank you for the reply - the multi colored light was in place of the white light as an option - sorry about that.

    BTW, 6' depth is kind of an oddity. Too deep to stand (unless you are all very tall ), too shallow to be jumping or diving in.

    Is your wind direction fairly constant? Mine changes a lot and I'm glad I have two skimmers on opposite sides.

    Only 1 skimmer? You really need 2. One in the upwind(or south in my case) direction and one down wind(north in my case) direction . Helps keep the stuff falling into pool from building up in one end of the pool or the other . Or i'm i reading it wrong. 1+ to Jblizzle's comments.
