    The light is in there too. It’s an incandescent pool light. The 5 pvc pipes are in addition to the light and the skimmers. It looks like there are 4 on one side and on between the skimmers above the light on the other side. The plan is for a robot for pool cleaning, but it’s possible the PB...

    Gunite was shot yesterday. Starting to look more an more like a pool. Seems there are more returns than I was expecting (5?). Are all of the PVC pipes that go through the shell water returns or are there other things they can be used for?

    Thank you for the info. I think I have the pump and automation pieces figured out or at least I understand the trade offs at this point. Not sure which way I am leaning yet. The other two questions I have are the filter and heater the right size for my pool and are there any other products I...

    Thanks Jim. That certainly paints a picture. You’ve definitely given me something to think about. So I guess my decision point is really automation or not with the following setups. Any issues with the two setups below or will these play nice together? automation EasyTouch 4PSC-IC40 -...

    Jim, I appreciate your feedback. It’s definitely one of those things where you don’t know what you don’t know. it sounds like your setup is similar to what I am planning. What are the automation features you can’t live without that can’t be achieved through simple timers?

    Your point on the 3HP pump is well taken. I guess I was mostly thinking i could save a couple bucks upfront if I didn’t need the intelliflo compared to the superflo given the size of the pool. The plan for the pool is very simple. No spa, no water features, no solar. Just heater, swc, pump...

    Do you think it’s worth swapping out the superflo for the intelliflo? My initial though was the intelliflo was overkill for a 14k gallon pool. Aside from the automation, are there other benefits I’d be gaining from the intelliflo for a simple small pool setup like mine? Would you still...

    Thanks for the feedback Jim. I was actually thinking of nixing the automation all together as I don’t think I would really use it. I am more of a set it and forget it type of guy and from what I have read I was thinking the programming on the superflo might suffice, but interested if there is...
