A pool volume of 2900 gallons is in the range we would call a Seasonal or Temporary pool. The link below describes how we suggest running that type of pool. It does assume you will drain the water when issues arise.
I managed to get a Taylor 2006C sent over from a supplier in USA last year (11th of July) with a speedstir and salt water test. They sent it by UPS and I had to pay customs duty before it was released to delivery. Poolvacparts.com or AZ Pool Supplies (same company). Overall a very good experience.
