Hello!!! This is my very first post although I have been reading for awhile. Love this site, is so full of information. We have never own a pool before so this is all new to us. The size of the pool we are getting estimates for will be 36' x 15' rectangular or L shape (we keep changing our minds on this) from 4' to 6' deep. If we do the L would be to build a sun shelf and stairs on that side otherwise a simple rectangular with no sun shelf and no spa. The pool will be for exercise and do some physical therapy. We have no kids and do not socialize much.
We are trying to decide on a heater between Jandy Pro Series JE Heat pump or Gulf Stream GPS automation. One of the pool builders told me the GulfStream was more economical on the electrical bill. She went further to say it would only be about $40.00 a month?? The other question is salt system, between the Jandy or Copilot Ozonator.
I have to say I called 2 pool builders and after a month they are still working on a proposal. I am very dissapointed about that so I called another 2 pool builders and at least I got some response. I really wanted to have my pool ready by November but it doesn't seem it's going to happen. By the way we live in Miramar, Florida.
I appreciate any comments, advise, suggestion, anything. Thanks so much!
