Whichever way it goes I've decided against composite, I've swam in them when I was in Aus and they aren't my thing. Rainy season seems to be early this year but I can wait.
Come to think of it mate,I've got a emaux sph 15 pump.its 1.5 hp and about right for your pool but you need a big sand filter for it.probably 30inch.the sph series is the top of the range and moves more water for less money.ive used it for 6 months for my jacuzzi but it's too powerful as I've only got 3 jets and need something smaller.cost 19,500baht I'll take 11,000b and guarantee it for 6 months.emaux are a good pump.i took one off this pool and it was about 15 years old and still going as strong as ever.do your research and get back to me.emaux sph 150,2 inch inlet outlet.remember the bigger the filter the better and don't have to run them as long.

This post is really exciting since I am also looking into investing into a pool when my house build begins, and I would really appreciate if you guys could share an estimate cost on how much you used (yeah I know it can costs as much as one wants, but I do not intend to pay insane farang prizes 😁😁)

Seems most have forgotten to install and bring out an earth bond conductor on the reo.

Size matters as the mrs tells me......you need to ask what size your thinking about first.8x4 metre is a nice size and manageable.1-2 metres in depth so you can dive in.thats 48 cubic metres of water.i would recommend a 1hp pump with an over sized sand filter,28 inch using zeolite and not sand.the object is to turn the whole pool water over or under 6 hours a day and this would be plenty.dont know about costs of building,maybe follow what vince is doing and self build is far the cheapest way.pool companies are mental prices and don't have much in the way of after care once they've been paid.also there is an art to looking after a pool in this climate.you tube is the best way to look into building a pool and maintaining it.they can be a nightmare with rain messing up the balance of the water and out here the debris of black soot when they burn the crops off.remember the pump should turn the water over at the least once a day and the bigger the filter the more it will pick up the dirt and not be forced through the filter and back into the pool.i think I may know someone who can give you a price (farang)

Kopkei, you have been a tremendous help, I’m very grateful. As for keeping the pool clean, I’ve always used granulated chlorine, it’s easy to dose and safe to handle so I’ll most likely stick to that.
