Hello folks, I'm about 1 week away from the hardware installation, pool is build, pavers installed, screen cage is under construction and well on my way to having water in the pool in 2 weeks. I have a few questions in the last phase of my build..... Any incite on upgrades would be appreciated....
1- Pool Plaster
My pool builder is suggesting I upgrade my plaster from Krystallkrette to the Aqua Pearl Plaster at a cost of about 1800 -2200 more. Obviously the Krystallkreete was in the original contract and is included.

I'm not seeing a lot of difference other than the upgrade is a 3M product, is this upgrade really worth 2k.
2 - Pool Automation
My pool builder has offered me an upgrade from the "easy Touch 4" with a remote to the "IntelliTouch" system for an addition 1600 without a remote but with the PC interface. This seems rather expensive but I figured I would bounce if off you folks.
3 - Salt
My pool builder is not a fan of salt, specifically he feels it causes issues with the equipment and leads to rust issues. He "included" and ozonator and a nature 2 systems, all of the references were installed that way and seem to happy. I have read for the past couple of days and the N2 system is not well received on this forum, is it possible it works better with our Florida hard water? Just grasping for straws of course.
Any help would be appreciated folks, thank you so much...
