Hello all. Thanks in advance for any and all help.
We are currently speaking with three pool builders about installing a fiberglass pool in our yard. We live in south-eastern Virginia on the water and hence have clay for soil and a fairly high water table level (one pool builder drilled a core sample and hit water at 5' 6" and we've been fairly dry this summer).
My question is that while trying to make and apples to apples comparison of bids I notice that one company includes a sump pump but no drains in their proposal and another includes drains but makes no mention of a sump pump. Help!? Are they just approaching the same issue differently or are they talking about two different animals?
Thanks for any and all advice. As y'all know this is a significant chunk of change and we want to make the right decision.
