Help with equipment specs
Help! I am trying to evaluate several pool construction proposals, and they all have different equipment specified. My pool will be L-shaped, with the long part of the L being 14.5' x 32'. It will be a play pool with the depth going from 3.5' to 4.5' to 3.5'. The short part of the L will be 16' x 8', with half of it being an 8' x 8' in-pool spa.
The equipment spec'd in my proposals (if I am understanding the proposals correctly) are:
1.) pool pump 1 hp, spa pump 1.5 hp;
2.) pool pump 2 hp 2 speed, spa pump 1.5 hp 2 speed; or
3.) one pool pump 1.5 hp will run both pool and spa.
All 3 propose a 400k btu heater (either Master Temp, Hayward, or Rheem)
All call for a polaris cleaner. 1 proposes a 3/4 hp pump on the polaris.
1 proposes a 1 hp Air Supply blower for the spa. Another just specifies a Galaxy blower.
The salt generators spec'd are Intellichlor or GoldLine.
Any opinions on these equipment proposals would be greatly appreciated (especially on the pump sizes needed). Thanks!
