Hello everyone, i have been reading the forums and tracking all the pool builds and all of the other goodies of information these forums have provided. I wanted to go ahead and share our story and pool build with everyone.
We interviewed about 8 companies, got 8 different designs and 8 different quotes before deciding on our pool vendor. We had a decent space to work with, not huge but not small. We knew we wanted plenty of room to entertain and we knew we wanted to get a SPA. We also decided on Gas for heating the spa as we knew that one of our main reason for getting the spa would be becuase we wanted to use it in the Winter time as well and even in North Florida it can dip into the mid to upper 30's and we wanted to be able to heat and go, not wait and we didnt want the huge cost of getting one of the icebreaker units.. ( i think thats what there called )
We went with Pentair Products, i dont have the model Numbers with me specifically but will update the post accordingly.
Here are the Main Options we went with
Pentair inteliflo 3hp variable speed pump
Pentair clean and clear filtrer
intelinright color changeing led
Pentair no lube 3 way valve system
Pentair IC40 salt system
Pentair easy touch 4 function wireless home automation
Pentair 400K BTU gas heater
Pavers are the Mega Olde Town in Sand Dune
CLI Pebble Tek / Majestic Isle
Signed the Contract and Deposit on March 8th, i think the normal sales pitch is 6-8 weeks.....
Everything was going great in the beginning, things moved at a relatively good pace. Communication seemed ok but im a planner...logistics is key for me as well as communication. There is never too much communication and there was never enough.. Will go days in not a week with no communication. There have been bumps along the road, that we have had to sort out, there was a 3 week period where there was no work completed at all, there was a mishap on someones end with our tile. We kept asking for delivery information and they kept saying it would be here... the problem was no-one ever called the vendor..... The vendor never ordered it. After it was ordered now we are finding out that there wasn't enough ordered, and here is where we wait....
Currently The Remaining Tile is scheduled to be here on this Friday. 5/13.
Current Schedule from PB:
Thursday 5/12 Electrician
Friday 5/13 Finish Tile in Spa and Start Coping
Monday 5/16 Pavers are supposed to start
Tuesday 5/17 We are going to have the New Fence Installed ( May move this up to Wednesday )
Now the Goods......
