Thank you!!!First glance:
Dump the in floor cleaner, the ozone system and the assorted pumps. That size pool is fine with a single 3hp Variable Speed for the main and a spa pump. IMO, you are better off with cartridge filter compared to sand. I. would definitely adjust the payment schedule so you are more balanced, especially with 12K down, you have nearly 40K out of pocket at steel with no where near that much $ / work completed. The final payment should be something that compels the builder to complete the job on time and correctly, 10-15% of the total. Make sure you have drawings, including any setbacks or other requirements spec’d, a design that you approve of, and that’s done before giving a down.
And in another place it has:Sorry that was on the next page:
Yes, bingo on the size discrepancy. So no worries. Sounds like a nice size.No. No diving board. I figured it’s because there is hot tub integrated into the 20’ x 40’ shape? The 8’ is for Aquaaerobics

Yeah, that's not a great equipment setup. I'd recommend the following if going Hayward:
3HP Hayward Ecostar variable speed pump (non-SVRS model)
Hayward OmniLogic Smart Pool & Spa Control
T-Cell-15 Salt Chlorination TurboCell
Raypak gas heater with cupronickel fin tube material (works best for saltwater pools) Your heater doesn't need to be the same brand as the automation (all other equipment above must be Hayward if using automation). Raypak gas heaters are highly recommended here.
You may need additional accessories for the automation above, though I'm not an automation expert, so I can't say exactly which ones.
You don't need a blower for your spa. If properly plumbed, it is unnecessary. Again, I'm not that expert but it's true.
You definitely don't want that vacuum. Nix the pressure side cleaner and booster pump. Get a robot yourself like the Dolphin S200 or Active 20 twins. Less complexity, less electric usage, better performance. This one's a no-brainer.
