First off it is ****** of the builder not to bring this to your attention before now. That said you pretty much only have three optionsThey are here today working on the equipment. They brought a second pump, 1/2 hp Whisperflo that will run the bubblers and deck jets.
Any other feedback on what you might do in my situation?
Thanks, @wreckem. You summed up all my thoughts exactly. I was pretty mad all yesterday and spinning. Not sure when they were ordered but he asked for the payment for the equipment back in February. So I at least paid him for them then. I'll ask him if there is an ETA on the orders, I did not think to ask that. He's said he's had orders in with Pentair for a while. I need to get more details. With all the PB fighting over parts, I don't know how I would have more luck. Going with option 1 knowing it going to be a battle to make it happen even with a contract.First off it is ****** of the builder not to bring this to your attention before now.

1. Agree to their plan. Agree to install this stuff for now but it will get replaced with the right equipment when it arrives. Get everything in an written contract/addendum. If you don’t get it in written contract it’s not going to happen and you will be stuck with what they have.
2. Wait it out and possible miss the entire summer. Those parts are all currently back ordered 3-7 months. When did the PB place the order? What is the orders ETA?
3. Source the parts on your own and get the PB to agree to deduct the prices off the pool and install them with a warranty. Just know you are going to struggle to find all the equipment.
