Welcome to TFP.

How many gallons will be in your pool?

A T-3 cell is rated for 15,000 gallons and we recommend at a minimum the SWG be 2X the pool volume. So a T-3 cell is only appropriate if the pool is 7,500 gallons or less.

I would bump up the salt setup to either an aquaplus with T15 cell bundle if you want automation or T15 cell with aquarite if your in hot part of TX. I prefer a 400ish sqft catyridge cam never be too big. The bigger filters have quad cartridges much easier to keep clean.

It's a small pool probably around 10k gallons so they will be fine with a 250k if on a budget. One nice thing with propane is its higher pressure than natural gas so the line size doesn't cost you more just the unit upcharge to go bigger.
