Swimming Pool & Spa Construction & Maintenance/Inground pool equipment

Question
Layout
Layout  
Just trying to get a warm fuzzy if the layout; and that the equipment choices make sense.

We’re putting in a 22K gallon Fiberglass pool. We’ll have 3 water features, plus I want to be prepared for a solar water heater. The solar water heater is not included in the first phase, but I got one 3 way valve  and the checkvalve.
The three Actuators are for the 3 way valves.

For the Solar plan was to keep them on ground level (aka not on the roof)

The pool will be in Michigan; and the equipment is roughly 30 ft away; with an elevation of 4 feet above water table.

Some questions:
•   Generally speaking; does this makes sense.
•   We oversized the heater, is that of concern?
•   We oversized the filter, is that of concern?
•   The Pump is a 1.5 HP VFD. Should be adequate; your thoughts?. Just pony up and get a 3 HP VFD?

Answer
Sorry for the delay.
• Generally speaking; does this makes sense.
• We oversized the heater, is that of concern?
No it does not since the cutoff will happen at given temperature and the water will get heated faster.
• We oversized the filter, is that of concern?
NO

• The Pump is a 1.5 HP VFD. Should be adequate; your thoughts?. Just pony up and get a 3 HP VFD?
I would have concern if pump is oversize rest is Ok since iT would increase capital cost but the quality of water and heating would be great.I would recommend a 2hp VFD pump since the waterfall is connected.
