Here's the first quote that I received for my pool equipment. What do you all think? Anything I should add/subtract?

Jorge,

I do not see anything on your list that raises any red flags..

Most Florida filters are dinky, yours is not, so that is a good thing.

The IntelliFlo is a great pump, and in my mind the industry Gold standard of pool pumps.

The IntelliCenter with IC40, is the way to go, as long as your pool volume is 20K gallons, or below.

I personally like to see two skimmers and four returns, one on each "side" of the pool.

You currently have two IntelliValves, which will be used to switch between the pool and spa modes.. If you intend to be able to control your bubblers via automation, you will need at least one more. I suggest you look at how you want to use any water feature and determine if automation makes sense.

I like the idea of channel drains.

Why do you need two check valves? You will need one for the spa return line, but if the other one is right after the heater, it is not required as you will have a SWCG.

I do not see any pool cleaner "stuff" and assume you plan on a Dolphin style robot. If so, a great idea.. I would leave the vacuum line shown in the drawing, just in case..

Thanks and good luck with your pool build.

Spent the weekend getting the backyard ready!

We had only two of the permits get sent back for changes/clarification. My engineer has corrected the plans and I have the new/updated plans and will be taking them down to the permit office on Tuesday. I'm hoping to have the final permits some time this week and break ground next week.

Exciting times!

Good job getting it all ready to go! How exciting there were only two items that needed to be tweaked. SWEET!

You are going to want to take any fabric items in as they will be very dirty fast from the dust and such. I would also cover anything that might be harder to clean as well with a tarp.

Nice looking design. I live in a county where you can get a permit same day.....in theory..... I had to go back and forth with a couple of revisions myself. It is a sigh of relief when you have it all approved for sure.

Thanks for posting that equipment list Jorge. I used it as a reference for mine.
Was able to sneak in a new mini split HVAC system for the garage too. Hopping the overlord doesn’t notice..

HOW exciting!!! How do you like the placement now that you can see the shape and where it is going? Can you get up high to look down at it to make sure it is right where you want it?
