I have been on here a few months now reading posts, pool school, and even posting a few questions. I am in the planning/design phase for an owner/build in-ground shotcrete pool with about a 20,000 gallon capacity. Right now I am leaning towards a cartridge filter, SWG, variable speed pump (maybe 2), pebble sheen, attached spa, sheer decent water feature, baja step and possibly some fire pots.
I am really on the fence as far as in-floor cleaners. I want one if I have confidence in it working correctly but many post on here have told me they don't (others love them). I have desert landscaping and would only be getting dust in the pool for the most part.
I look forward to learning as much as I can here and plan to post my progress once I get a design going.
I work in the construction industry and understand how things are built. That being said, I know there is no perfect construction project but think it will be fun/challenging to take on the GC role. Any advise to offer a newbie would be appreciated.
