I've been doing a lot of reading over the last couple weeks, mostly on TFP and finally got a chance to drop by a local dealer. I do have a slope in my back yard but she started off with pricing for the doughboy then compared to Radiant Metric. As I read in one of the other threads, I'm pretty close to priced out of it. I do have quite a bit of land so pricing all started with the largest of each company, she noted dropping to the second largest Oval Metric dropped the price by $2k.
Then she showed me pricing for round pools, quite a difference. Of course I'm interested in the extras like the walk in steps (quoted $4k for that option and another $5k for the deep end). Then add in excavation, electrical, decking and fencing and seemed we were up in the mid $30k range. More than I was want to go into. She had estimates in her book for just fencing around the pool of $6k to $7k and decking she said now has just gone through the roof.
At any rate. I've been unable to find an online dealer for Radiant Pools. One post mentioned SPP (Specialty Pool Products), I did find them online and their store on Ebay, which is the only place the deal Radiant Pools and only the round ones.
Any help or thoughts? From what I've read, anyone who has a Radiant Metric pool loves them and I know others have opted to go the Doughboy route. I'm just trying to get some kind of thoughts together to see if I'm even going to consider going on with the search.
