I too am beginning the pool bidding process. I live in Leander right outside Austin and have begun to meet with builders(only two so far). I was wondering if any of the fellow Austin folks could share their experiences as far as the interview process, who they would recommend etc. I am not sure if we can mention our builders here by name. I don't see why we wouldn't be able to mention them as this is a forum to share and learn from each other, but I will wait to hear the word on that. Anyway any info will help and I have been loving everyone's build threads so far, a lot of great looking pools getting built! I have learned a ton and will post my bids and designs when they come in to get some opinions, thanks!
