    the only red flag I see is the cartridge filter, I find them very annoying to service. Disassemble filter, remove element, spray off element, take shower, reassemble filter

    I like backwash & rinse sand or earth filters (look my hands are still dry)

    There are many people who totally love their cartridge filters. Which kind of filter you choose tends to be much like religious issues, everyone has a strong opinion and they are all different.

    Cart filters are a good match for SWG pools, and since your's is a large cart, I don't think you'll have to clean it very often (assuming you avoid algae )

    What is

    Aqua Plus 40K Gallon Chlorination and Control PL-Plus

    ???

    Looks like the salt water generator (my guess)

    I live on an acre with a septic system hence one reason for going with cartridge...and water is EXPENSIVE out here....

    It is an automation system with a SWG. I also second using a cart with a SWG. No backwashing means more stable water chemistry.
