I'm been lurking for a few days now, trying to soak up as much info as possible. Why? Because we are in the process of obtaining estimates for a pool, and I'm having the dickens trying to figure out what options to add in the package given there's a limited budget.
Like I said, I have read a lot of threads, but still if anyone wanted to give some feedback, the info below reflects our current thinking (and if I had to give something significant up, as in a couple thou, what would you suggest?).
16X36 shotcrete - 3.5' to 6' depth - somewhat of a modified "L" shape, no spa or water features, estimated at 16k gallons
Options currently hoping to include:
Min 2" plumbing throughout
Lower end control/automation (EasyTouch or similar)
SWG (Intellichlor IC20 or similar)
Cartridge filter (Clean & Clear 200 - large enough?)
Variable speed pump (probably VS-3050)
Solar panels (Fafco or Heliocol)
Acrylic coated concrete deck
In-floor cleaning (paramount or A&A)
Baby fence (Not really an option - Florida code - that or alarms, & wife doesn't trust alarms)
And of course if I should have posted this info/questions somewhere else, please excuse the noob.
