    New Pool Build

    I appreciate the input Jim, I need to figure this out. Having two pool cleaners doesn't make sense. They are a reputable PB, but I also think they are trying to sell something I don't need. Need to do more research on this.

    New Pool Build

    If I decide to scrap the IFCS, will the Polaris 280 be sufficient to clean the pool adequately? Pebble Tech is being used on the gunite.

    New Pool Build

    Thank you for this information. I decided to go with one as the PB gave me a really good price. Less than 3K. I think if its possible to do what you have suggested and go separate for the pumps. I am looking for the most easiest part of owning a pool and thinking that the IFCS would work out...

    New Pool Build

    Thank you. I am thinking about going with all Pentair. Not sure why they are requesting jandy system. Maybe they are used to going with jandy. I like the Pentair much better after reviewing it. Is it worth going with vs pump? I would guess costs to run would be much better.

    I/G Light in A/G Pool

    I installed a Aqua Illiminator from poolcenter.com recently and am not too happy with it. It only lights about 1/2 the pool and that is without the red/green/red light attachments. Not too happy right now. I dont know anything else that is out there, but wanted to give you a heads up on this...
