Welcome to TFP.

Nice build so far! May I suggest that you ditch the uv system/ozone as it is very unnecessary in an outdoor pool, adds metals to the water and causes terrible staining of the pool surface. You can do a quick search and see that TFP does not recommend the use of these units.

I'm thinking you might be happier with a larger filter, maybe something like 200 sq. ft. Larger is always better.

Salt? Probably not with your Oklahoma flagstone. That seems to be a fairly soft stone that doesn't play well with SWCG's. But that means you will need to use liquid bleach to chlorinate instead of tabs in the chlorinator once your CYA is at the correct level. If you're not sure where I'm going with that, Pool School and the FC/CYA relationship will explain it. I'm presuming you will ditch the UV widget (plenty of UV already hitting your pool unless it's in your basement).

I have very similar Hayward equipment to yours and have been pleased so far.

Some people do still go with salt and softer stones but it requires vigilance at sealing and is no guarantee against stone erosion.

Your filter size at 325 SF looks well sized. That's over 3 times your surface area which is pretty good.

Thanks for the help I sent an email to the PB I will see how he responds.

A note about limestone and salt, I have both with about the same setup as yours (http://www.troublefreepool.com/new-tx-pool-t17907.html). Out of about 30 pieces I had the builder replace 5 after 2 years due to flaking. Still 3 new stones have issues. It seems some limestone has no problem and others do. I'm not sure you can know this until installed. Also had the stone sealed and this lasted one season.

I read the title as a new Wave pool (with waves), then I read it as New Wave pool inspired by a type of 80's music.

Either way, I was disappointed. lol.

kidding but your pool is looking good so far.
My PB suggested to stay away from limestone and OK flagstone with saltwater as they are soft and will deteriorate unless you seal it often.
