Can someone please advise me as to what is the best choice of equipment for a 16x32 inground vinyl liner pool that will start construction in about 2 weeks in Georgia(dont know if area makes a difference or not?) our builder is using Jandy, with cartridge filter, nature 2,, with 2 hp pump and i believe a auto chlorinator tablets. If i worded all that wrong forgive me as i dont really understand. I have been reading alot about proper chem maintenance and balance and would love it if someone could offer advice. Thank you

Read Pool School and this forum and you will likely find

1. Pass on the nature 2- it will add minerals to your pool that could stain and cause other problems
2. 2 hp is probably way too big a pump for your poolsize (unless you have water features, spa, etc.)
3. a chlorinator is nice for vacation, but should not really be used regularly, especially since you will have a cartridge filter
