Electrician said I have to switch out this box because it is rotten (won't pass inspection) and I don't have space for my heater and pump. I couldn't really understand what he was talking about since I have no knowledge of electrical, can someone share some insights of what I need here?

You need a new main electrical panel. You then have one or more subpanels in the house. The electrician needs to connect another feed into the main electrical panel or one of the subpanels to feed your pool equipment. Wherever that feed to the pool equipment is connected to needs space for a circuit breaker, which your existing box does not have.

Fair price. It's a meter pan and main disconnect. The new one will look much nicer and cleaner that's old school
Please post finished product of the new electrical install.....
