This is what PB offer.

For the VSF we would pay an extra $ 800.

Should I change anything ?
Should I also ask for VS 011028 instead?

Easy Touch automation it has the salt built in
Filter: Pentair Cartridge - 420
Salt: Pentair IC40
Pump: Pentair IntelliFlo VSF 3HP

Will meet with him tomorrow morning as he is coming to to backfill.

Close to what I thought.

You want your SWG capacity to be 2X your pool volume. The IC60 is what you should get.
Thank you @ajw22 I really appreciate your help.

Last question for now.

Filter. Do we go with cartridge ( 420 ) as suggested by PB or should we ask for sand filter?

IC is preface for the swg u want an IC60 not a 40. You want a VS pump not a VSF. As far as their backfill it is very poor judging by the picture. I dont see a compactor anywhere. Hes doing a nice job overall but something as important as backfill for your deck is not worth skimping. With a concrete wall liner pool you can jumping Jack right against the wall and do it nice. I'm hoping you are not planning for pavers or stone decking anytime soon

@jimmythegreek please be patient with me.

PB said he will return next week for stone copping. Why did you say not anytime soon?

What is a compactor (backfill) ?

I did request the IC60 this afternoon.

Now we were told the VSF has a sensor connected to the drain on the bottom of the pool. As an example if a child get sucked the sensor would turn the drain off? This os what I was told today in a pool store. I went there to try understand the difference between the vsf and vs. Is this true? We have a 6 and 7 yrs old which we will teach to swim (classes) but knowing about this feature it eased my fears a little bit.

Please what are you all thought?
Again thank you very much.
I plan in soon contribute $$$ to the group and get our test kit.
