Hi, I finally found a pool builder here in Keller Texas area that we like but have some questions about his quote and equipment choices. They are very well known and respected in the Keller, Southlake area for building quality pools. All of our quotes have been close but this one is 10K more than the rest. This is only builder that mentioned the use of chemical injections that stabilizes the soil movement we have in Keller area ( est $2600 ). They also have designed plumbing that moves more water with much less energy. Average 5 year cost is $4,350 versus $10,465 with other systems. It really seems like they build a strong energy efficient pool that will last but the price just doesn't seem right.
The other issue I have with this builder is they use a mineral/chlorine puck combo with ozone for sanitation. Unless something has changed with the technology this method will not work for outdoor residential sized pools. In fact it may harm the pool and swimmers over time. I mentioned my fear of the pucks raising CYA and he said it won't happen. How can a highly respected pb use this method for sanitizing the pool? Is the increased water turnover rate able to better use this technology?
I Love this website and plan to use the BBB method for my pool. I have been wrestling with either SWCG or liquid with pump. Every pb has said SWCG would be a mistake and will ruin my stone, equip etc. and void my warranty. Why can't we come to final conclusion on use of SWCG? LOL. Thanks for reading and if anyone has advise on these methods I would love to hear it. Eric
