Hello all, I am new to the pool forum and to entertaining thoughts of having a pool built. Hence the name, newfool. Spending much money to dig a hole in the backyard :P
I would love any and all advice as well as your thoughts on:
1. In floor cleaners
2. variable speed vs. 2 speed vs. single speed pumps - potential electricity savings, sizing for 11-13k gallon pool, etc.
3. automation for cleaning - is it something that can be easily added later as money will be tight during this phase
I have enclosed a proposed shape/design. The pool area is roughly 400 sq. feet so it will be a small pool. I am trying to make the pool very economical to own, so there will be no pool heater (in FL anyways). The finish will be Pebble Tec sheen. There will be no back raised wall, it was an option my wife and I were toying with but it would be too expensive and not really make sense as there is no real good way of centering it (imho).
Thanks to all for looking at my ramble.
