    Some final choices on new pool build

    Looking at a 14,000g Grecian shape liner pool. Sat through several PB sales pitches.
    Going with a Hayward SWG system. The T-3 Turbo Cell seems like the right size, but one PB is pitching me on his free "distributor upgrade" to a T-15 Turbo Cell. Any advantage/ disadvantage to going with this seemingly oversized unit.

    Also, going with a Hayward VS pump. High electric rate .18/kWh and otherwise generally interested in energy efficiency. PB's are pitching Hayward Superpump VS. I can get a Hayward EcoStar for less than $200 more. Worth the extra money? Any advantages other than higher efficiency.

    Welcome to tfp, Shenk

    We recommend sizing the swg 1.5-3 times the sized of the pool, so I would go no smaller than the T-9, and the T-15 is probably even a better choice.

    Either vs pumps will work, but if you have high volume water features, then the Ecostar may be a better fit...we would need to know more of you pool build details.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.
