Welcome to the board neighbor. Look forward to watching the build. It's good you are doing a robot instead of suction side, after reading a lot on the board that is one change I made which is essentially an even swap in terms of the credit I got back and the robot I bought.

One thing I didn't catch before joining the board, they seem to recommend each skimmer being individually plumbed to the back so that way you can regulate each one and how much suction if you need to adjust anything. So might be something you want to ask the PB.

Another thing is after reading and seeing pictures I ended up adding a 3rd light in my pool which is 12x37 so I could eliminate any dead spots. Might be something to consider.
