Our pool builder really messed up on his end and his profit margin is almost zero. He is taking much slower than the contract promised but I am insanely happy with the actual construction and look of the pool. He mis calculated the number of trucks that the shotcrete would take by one, the number of days and man power it would take to build our pool (weeks more). I believe he is being honest with us, but you never know. He is now attempting to charge us for things that we agreed on (small charges, but still charges)
Issue- he contracted for the intellitouch 8 +1 (also known as the 9), but in his head was thinking easy touch ( I guess its a huge price difference as the intellitouch does not come with the salt system and costs more in general- plus he contracted for the wireless remote). He is willing to go with the contract but is asking for a little extra if we want the 8+1. He's telling me that the 6 + 1 or 7 is more than enough for our pool and we will still have room for expansion. I just want to verify this with someone who knows. I don't want to have the 9 just to have it. I want room for mild expansion but do not need over kill ( it is a smaller size yard) Here is what we have in means of pool stuff and other things like low voltage lighting etc.
Pool spa combo- The VS will control the spa and the pool ( I know we should have gotten the booster pump also, but our buddies pool uses the same system and were happy with it)
Pump 2 for our sheer decents
2 intelibright lights 1 pool 1 spa
suction side pool sweep with dedicated line
single run of low voltage lighting
single run of sprinklers ( can I even run this on the intellitouch?)
With the above configuration is the intellitouch 7 good with a little room for growth or do I need the 9?
Thanks for your help! I know Simi is out there : )
