Looking for Directions on a system
I am just starting to price an inground vinyl pool for my house. We are looking at something in the 18x38 size. I have been looking at different filters, pumps, timers, etc, and feel a little overwhelmed. I am sure most of the pool quotes will contain a sand filter and a basic pump (which might be fine). I do believe I want a salt system, but other than that I am really clueless. I like the idea of a cleaner pool and feel myself leaning toward a cartridge filter. My pool will be on the basic side, no fountains or shooting streams. Does it make sense to stay with one brand, or do people interchange brands amoung their components? Also like the idea of the variable flow pump, but would I need that? I like the idea of saving money, but my electric rates are fairly cheat at .066 per kwh.
I am hoping someone can make recommendations for my pool. I am sure you did what your PB suggested or the board, but now you have your equipment and know the pros/cons, can you make a suggestion of what I would need.
Thanks in advance for any help, and I really appreciate this board.
