Hi all,
I have a lot of catching up to do here. Our pool/spa project started in mid-November. Existing trees, plants, planter wall, cement, and old fencing were removed from the backyard. Permits took about 5-6 weeks. Excavation and rebar were done in mid-February. Gunite was sprayed the first week of March. Waterline tile is just about done. We're chugging along, but I have some concerns about the pool equipment selections. Everything is Pentair and I've done enough reading to know it's a quality brand.

A list of equipment was included in my contract, but I'm not sure if it's what I need or should have. Pool equipment is being ordered later this week. I would really appreciate some guidance/advice so I can make changes if necessary. THANK YOU!
