    New quote with UV sanitizer and other questionable items

    Good information, I think I will go with the cartridge filter he quoted, 320sqft. I am going to go with the recommendations: Intellicenter kit with swg, cartridge filter, maybe plumb the pool fill line from the water softener, get a corrosion resistant coping, and make sure the swg runs on the...

    New quote with UV sanitizer and other questionable items

    Thanks Jim I definitely want to go with a saltwater system, so I'm going to ask for the Pentair IntelliCenter i5PSIC40 Kit that you suggested. Any recommendation on filters? A friend of mine has DE and I have helped him take it out and rinse it off thoroughly. He says the backwash doesn't...

    Thanks for the information about the water softener line. I will see about having the pool fill line plumbed to it. After reading information on this site, I'm convinced going with a SWG is a better choice. Any recommendations on type of filter and specific pentair controller is appreciated...

    Chris, Thanks for the reply. Not sure why the pump is so big. The spa is 650 gallons that is slightly above the pool and waterfalls into the pool. Topography is all relatively flat, so no big elevation rise or drop. I'm assuming this is a shared pool and spa system. It will have a pentair...

    Thanks for the replies. I guess the feature pump is for the spa. Not sure if the primary pump can control both. The filter just says it is for 320 sqft. I'm not sure how I would switch between pool and spa modes. What are the options? You are right, the pool designer was not familiar with...

    Hello everybody, We are in the planning stages for a 12X24 rectangular pool with spa. The pool is a little under 8000 gallons and with spa total is 8500 gallons. Will be chlorine. The primary pump is a pentair intelliflo 3hp VS, the quote lists a feature pump that is a 2hp Whisperflow. It...

    Hello all, A friend recommended this site and I have been reading about pool chemistry, pool math, and other articles in pool school. A great resource, thank you. We are in the planning stages of a 12X24 rectangular pool with spa. We have a builder and contract and will hopefully start...
