I live in Northeast Kansas and we are considering an inground pool. I have talked to a few companies and received my first two estimates today. This is an apples to apples comparison for the most part with the exception of the wall construction. I will explain in more detail below but here are the specifics:
Size: 18x38 rectangle
Type: Vinyl Liner
Depth: 3.5ft gradually moving to 6ft
Chemicals: Salt water system
Cover: Automatic cover
Heater type: Gas
Decking: 900 sq ft regular concrete
Lights: 2 LED lights
$67,000 - walls made of Steel and size is 18x36 instead of 18x38
$48,000 - walls made of concrete
Both of these companies are very reputable and have been in business for 25+ years. I have friends who have used both companies and are very pleased with the service of both. I'm very confused about the $20,000 in price difference, especially since the higher quote is for a smaller pool.
I would love to hear feedback from the group on these estimates.
