    Get an IC60 SWG. We recommend your SWG capacity be at least 2X your pool volume.

    Good luck. Pictures of the pool build are always appreciated.

    Re: Pool build Vineland NJ

    Sounds like a really nice build. What are you thinking of doing for decking? Any thoughts of going with an autocover? I know if we were going with a rectangle I’d really consider one.

    Dap,

    Make sure that they don't try to give you the EasyTouch "Lite".. Model number will have an 'L' in it like PL4 or PSL4..

    You want a real EasyTouch like this one... https://sunplay.com/collections/pent...-system-520593

    This assumes you will NOT have a spa... We always recommend a cell that is at least 2 x the volume of your pool. This makes the IC40 a little small for the size of your pool, but being in NJ you will not have the same issues that people in Texas, and AZ have..

    The unit above comes with a built-in SWCG power supply.. When the IC40 needs to be replaced, you can just buy the IC60 cell.. Or if you are flush with cash, you can get the ET8 which comes with the IC60... https://sunplay.com/collections/pent...-system-521150

    Also makes sure your IntelliFlo pumps does NOT have the SVRS option.. Don't fall for the "it's required routine" it is not...

    Thanks,

    Jim R.

    The estimate for the autocover was 18k installed so no autocover lol.
    Re decking the pool is going in next to a 500sqft paver patio so we aren't doing any decking, just coping.

    We are getting the ez touch with integrated salt water generator. Our builder does not recommend adding salt for first 6 months so we are waiting on adding the swg until we can use it to get the most out of the warranty

    I am in to watch this one! It sounds great so far! I can't wait to see some pics!

    Plaster pricing-depending on your PB. Some say this and others may say that. Best to ask your PB on this one.

    Re: Pool build Vineland NJ

    Going to be a while to get through permitting. Some towns around here are ridiculous ie need 2 engineers to sign off on the plans but I think my town is reasonable just slow.
    I'll try to get some before pics of the yard

    I can't read the words but I like what I see in the drawing. What are the walls/benches around the pool?

    What kind of depths are you thinking of?

    We intend to surround the pool with a boxwood hedge and a limelight hydrangea hedge behind that in true hamptons style. We are doing 3.5 to 6' at the deepest.

    Most of nj is a pain. U prob misunderstood the requirements they want 2 sets of stamped engineered drawings when u apply not 2 diff engineers. Typical of any structural work

    Nope. Two engineers. Pb told us it costs people in that town thousands of dollars to get permits through. Apparently very litigious.

    Re: Pool build Vineland NJ

    Been a little while since I posted but, the pool is dug, gunite shot, back fill is done. Everything went great, our PB has been awesome. I guess we are waiting for spring to finish. We have one big decision left to make and im completely torn: coping.
    Our estimate has 12" bluestone tread coping, no decking we were going to surround it with lawn like a hamptons style pool. The pool is 6 feet from a 420 sqft patio.
    For the cost of the bluestone treads, I'd be able to do stamped, stained concrete, 3 feet of decking and another 300sqft patio.
    What do I do?!

    If the grass is going to be real then NO to the grass! You will thank me every time you don't have to worry about the grass in the pool from feet or the mower! If you can do fake grass then go for it but get the good stuff!
