    Power/wiring question Pentair SuperFlo VS

    New pool owners

    Hi, my wife and are new to owning/operating a pool. We recently moved and bought a house that has an 18' x 32' in ground gunite pool. To give some background neither of us have ever had or owned a pool before so there has definitely been a learning curve, but, one we are enjoying. It's so...
