We are at the bidding stage of our pool building journey. We originally wanted a lap pool, but our yard isn't big enough (14ft easement) . So we've decided to build a smaller pool (either 28 x 15 or 30 x 15) and include a current system, like a RiverFlow or Endless Pool Fastlane. For a design, we're interested in a pool with a geometric design.
Use: We don't have kids, but my elderly dad does live with me. My husband and I participate in triathlon and my husband swims a lot. He's doing a 3k swim in two weeks. My dog, a Chesapeake bay Retriever, also swims. So we want something simple, but functional. But we didn't want to go with just a swim spa.
We have three bids so far and our planning to get another tomorrow afternoon. Our main sticking point right now is that we can't seem to get a demo of the RiverFlow system. We are planning to demo the Endless pool this weekend.
Bids without the riverflow system range from 43k to 58k. The Riverflow adds about 20k to each bid. One builder offered to put it in for 14500. Tempting! So adding the RiverFlow will be a third of our cost! You can see why we are eager to test it out.
I've attached one of the designs we were given. I'm really not sure about the elevated wall. I had initially wanted a more streamlined approach. This design is for the 58K pool. (With riverflow, it would be 78k)
