    Welcome to TFP

    Nothing jumps out at me for equipment, make sure they use a pump or whole house surge protector for a VS pump because brownouts, lightning or any other electrical interference likes to kill them..

    Will there be bubblers in the sun-shelf. If not, most like them, we sure do. They are nice for sound, fun and interest and circulates the water on the sunshelf.

    Do you have children or grand-children that will come over regularly. If you will have little ones to your home frequently, recommend a fence rather than alarms. You are paying alot of alarms. My fence of about 40' was $850 with a swing gate.

    Do you have any drawings that you can show.

    Re: New pool estimate

    We have actually talked ourselves out of the cage so that is out. I have thought about bubblers in the sunshelf since we aren't doing a waterfall or anything like that. I should ask to see what it would cost. We are on a pretty tight budget. As far as alarms, I thought that was expensive too. From what I have heard, the county is really crazy on permits and regulations so it might be something specific to Sarasota....just not sure yet. It's just me and my husband 90% of the time. Our grandkids come down from TN once or twice a year.
    I have a pool drawing from this company in my email but I am not sure how to get it here to show everyone.

    Without a cage you may be required to have a fence of some kind. . If you already have a fencs around your yard, you might be fine. Check with your PB on the rules.

    If you ever think you will want a cage, get the footers done now

    Re: New pool estimate

    Are you having a heater installed? I can't imagine having to have a heater in Fl. I'm in Al and my pool temp gets up to 84 and I only have 5 hrs full sun. I'd rather have the cage.

    Re: New pool estimate

    We have a privacy fence already but will just have to move our latches up to 54". We did get a new estimate with footers and no cage. We might want to have one later. I have debated about the heater but since it is warm enough year round to swim here, I don't want to have to get in cold water in January. Of course cold water to me is anything less than about 82!

    Re: New pool estimate

    How many gallons is your pool? You might want to go bigger on your SWCG, instead of the IC40, get the IC60. It won't have to work as hard and in the long run will last longer, thereby saving you money.

    Pool is 14x30. You think the larger system would be a better option?
