    Intro and Shopping--South Florida

    Been reading like crazy on here trying to get up to speed. I am in South Florida and have spoken with 4 Pool Builders concerning my new pool build. Out of the 4, one has already been written off due to lousy communication (amazing that people do business like this). So far I have been pleased with the other 3 and are starting to get quotes in and some renderings.

    Home is on an ocean access canal with a very small yard, retaining wall is going the length of the dock. Going for a geometric "L" shape with sun shelf and the deck is going to be close to 850 sq.ft. Soil test/Engineering Report to be completed next week. So far, I have the following quote:

    19' x 28' Swimming Pool

    3.5'- 5.5' Depth

    *Exclusive ECO-CRC Circulation System- Min 11 Hydraulically Engineered Placed Returns with 55 individual Jets Streaming For Optimum Circulation, cleaning and Heating While Requiring Reduced Energy

    Jandy Premium Uprgraded DEV Filter - 3 year warranty

    Jandy AquaPure Salt Chlorination - 3 year warranty ( 40,000 gallon cell )

    Dual Main Drains with Anti-Vortex Grates

    Two Anti-Vortex Anti Entrapment Main Drains

    Final Grade (sod ready)

    SGM Diamond Brite Interior Finish ( upgraded darker blue finish )

    Pool Orientation

    Total Cost: $58,500.00 ( Travertine would be around $3,000.00 less )

    This company touts the 11 returns as being superior to anyone else. Not sure this is necessary or specifically "better" than having 3 wall returns plus the 2 drains that another company told me they use.Hoping to get some clarification on that and looking forward to some comments/concerns.

    Love the clean lines design. This layout by PB is very well would make me want to build right away. With the 11 returns, you might as well consider the infloor cleaning system - the cost differential cant be too much. Infloor cleaning systems also mention the benefit of better circulation for chemicals and heat.
