Ready to start our new pool build and would appreciate any feedback on our plan. Being a total novice, I want to thank the many posters here who have been invaluable during the months I have spent lurking and planning our pool. So here goes...

18'x 38' 600 sq. ft.
3-1/2 to 8 ft.
1 6' bench, 1 3ft. bench
#3 rebar on verticals
#4 rebar on horizontals
12" centers from 3-5 feet
6" centers for 5ft. and deeper
stacked stone spillover spa 7' interior, 3' deep
precast concrete coping
800 sq. ft paver deck
skimmers 1 or 2 as needed
returns 2 or 3 as needed
CVSC main drain
2 LED pool lights, 1 LED spa light
polaris 360, black
2 sheer descents
pebble sheen
SR Smith Frontier III diving board
18" raised bond beam at pool with 25 LF of stacked stone/termintating in column with cap
25" raised wall at seating area with 15 LF of stacked stone/terminating in column with cap
overflow line
circulation system
Rainbow 320 series chlorine dispenser

Still trying to decided between Jandy and Pentair. PB has more experience with Jandy but I am leaning to Pentair because of their slant towards technology and iphone interface etc.

If we go with Jandy will have
Jandy epump
Jandy Aqualink PDA-4
Jandy 580CL filter
Heater 400,000 BTU w/electornic ignition
Jandy Watercolors

If we go with Pentair:
Intelliflow Pump
Easy Touch with some type of remote
Intellibrite lights
Heater 400,000 BTU w/electornic ignition

The Pentair upgrade to make everything compatible with iphone and home computers would be about $1500 and would include upgrading to Intellitouch and also a Screen Logic Interface.

Any opinions on any of my specs are greatky appreciated as I am a total novice. Thanks!
